Here's a great 1940s Glenn Miller standard that will get any string orchestra swinging! The tunes, rhythms, and harmonies of the big-band era all come alive in this clever arrangement. All the string sections have opportunities to shine, and optional piano and vocal percussion parts add to the groove. And everybody gets to join in the classic "Pennsylvania 6-5-0-0-0" chant! This is a chart that will truly bring the crowd swinging to their feet!
