Glenn Miller Orchestra brings greatest generation’s music to Lancaster

(Continued)

LANCASTER —

There are no bad, or even distant, seats in the house, not even the balcony.

The restored Grand needed someone with talent and experience to make it a success, and fortunately it didn’t have to look very far to find the right person to bring in the crowds.

Garrard County native Debra Hoskins, formerly assistant director of the Norton Center for the Arts and then director of the EKU Center for the Arts, has put together a season that audiences could expect to find only in much larger cities.

If the size and enthusiasm of the midweek crowd that came out for the The Glenn Miller Orchestra is any indication, The Grand can expect a long and prosperous second life.

Both the theater and The Glenn Miller Orchestra are a lot alike in that regard.

  • 5-4 Derby Brunch 4 .jpg RAAC gives White Hall its own derby

    Most of the ladies wore extravagant hats, and the men were dressed in rather sporty attire.

    The crowd got misty eyed as they listened to a choir sing “My Old Kentucky Home.”

    And little guys rode horses at an iconic Kentucky location.

    The food was pretty good, too, including the obligatory hot brown and chocolate pecan pie.

    This was neither the Kentucky Derby or Churchill Downs, however.
