Complete with the String of Pearls Orchestra and the IN THE MOOD Singers & Dancers, IN THE MOOD, a 1940s musical revue creates a nostalgic atmosphere that transports the audience back in time – a time when everyone was singing and dancing to the same kind of music. IN THE MOOD aspires to promote the memory of this most significant time in American history and continues to inspire audiences of all generations. For over 2 hours this big retro event will hold your audience enthralled with its singers, dancers and period costumes, fine orchestral arrangements for your symphony, vocalists delivering songs from the 30s and 40s, choreographed dance routines and shear American pizzazz! The unique combination of the sensational String of Pearls Big Band Orchestra, the IN THE MOOD Singers and Dancers as choreographed by Broadway choreographer Alex Sanchez, will be the highlight of the season in a musically jam-packed performance. Treasures such as Swingin’ on a Star, Tuxedo Junction, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Sing Sing Sing, Chattanooga Choo Choo, I’ll Be Seeing You, La Vie En Rose, Take the A Train and The Last Time I Saw Paris are just a small part of a program that will leave your audiences cheering. IN THE MOOD, a 1940s musical revue has been touring the world for almost a quarter century. Many of the music arrangements for the show were written by Hollywood arranger Vic Schoen (1916-2000). During his illustrious career, Vic furnished music for some of the most successful personalities in Hollywood, i.e. Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Danny Kaye, Ella Fitzgerlad, Rosemary Clooney, the Andrews Sisters and countless others too numerous to mention. Songs like Memories of You and All the Things You Are along with a special musical tribute to all veterans will have your audience saying Thanks for the Memory.
