NEW BRUNSWICK—State Theatre presents “In the Mood” on Sunday, Nov. 14, at 3 p.m. More than a concert, “In the Mood” is a Big Band theatrical swing revue, featuring a company of 19 on stage including the In the Mood singers and dancers with the sensational String of Pearls Big Band Orchestra, performing the music of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, Harry James, Erskine Hawkins, The Andrews Sisters, Frank Sinatra, and other greats of the 1940s. “In the Mood” is underwritten by Ralph Voorhees. Tickets range from $32-52.
“In the Mood,” now in its 17th year, began as a celebration of American music from the 1940s — a time when big bands were drawing record crowds, and when the music of the time, swing music, played a pivotal role in maintaining American morale through World War II. “In the Mood” has played a number of sellout concerts for the National Archives in Washington, D.C., including the 50th Anniversary of World War II, as well as a series of USO tours. Since then, “In the Mood” has visited Europe and in 1997, the band and singers were selected to be part of the entertainment for the 53rd Presidential Inauguration Ball.
