MAINSTAGE SERIES: The theater welcomes back a favorite touring big band from last year to perfectly complement the setting of our historic theater that first opened in 1928 – just 10 years before the original version of this famous big band was formed. The world famous GMO, with its unique jazz sound, is considered to be one of the greatest bands of all time. The present version of the Orchestra was formed in 1956 and has been touring consistently since, playing an average of 300 live dates a year all around the world. Nick Hilscher is the Orchestra’s present music director. Tickets $10-$25. Individuals $25, Seniors (65+) and military $22. Students $10, PrivilegesPlus members $20.
