Glenn Miller Orchestra brings greatest generation’s music to 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.
