Nostalgia is big business these days, and if you like to recapture the sights, sounds, and memories of yesteryear then we have a treat for you!
The Nick Ross Orchestra (NRO) kicked off its autumn season back in August, and has been delighting audiences across the country with its big band explosion! Trumpets, trombones, a rhythm section, and a first class group of singers, all form part of the NRO experience, which arrives in London this October for a very special show.
The special Sunday concert will take place on October the 18th, at Her Majesty’s Theatre, Haymarket, and tickets are available now via www.seetickets.com. Take a trip back to the 1940’s for the NRO ‘Sounds of the Glen Miller Era’, and mark the 70th anniversary since the outbreak of World War 2.This Big Band explosion features not just hits from Glen Miller, but a whole host of other top acts too. Classic hits from the likes of Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Ted Heath, Ray Noble, Count Basie and others, all form part of the show.
