Fowler Center Series presents 'In the Mood' Oct. 25
The Fowler Center Series presents its third event of the
2009-10 season in Riceland Hall on Sunday, Oct. 25, at 2 p.m. with a
performance of “In the Mood,” a 1940s musical revue featuring the
music of the Swing Era. This appearance is part of the 2009-10
national tour of “In the Mood.” This performance is also part of the
Riceland Distinguished Presentation Series. Much more than a
concert, the big band theatrical swing revue “In the Mood” takes a
retro look at the life and time of America’s greatest generation, a
generation that was listening to and dancing to the music of Glenn
Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, Harry James,
Erskine Hawkins, the Andrews Sisters, Frank Sinatra, and others.
Audiences will experience the swing, rhythm, jazzy, brassy,
sentimental, and romantic music of this important time. The musical
revue features the In the Mood singers and dancers and the
sensational String of Pearls big band orchestra with arrangements,
costumes, and choreography that are as authentic as possible.
Tickets are selling rapidly; this event is nearly sold out.
Ticket prices are $30 and $20 for adults; $24 and $16 for ASU
faculty and staff; $23 and $15 for senior adults and K-12 students;
