FREDERICK, Md. — 3 Roads Communications Inc. of Frederick, Md., will produce a one-hour public TV special honoring iconic musician Glenn Miller.
Famous for standards including “Moonlight Serenade” and ““In the Mood,” Miller joined the Army during World War II, was named a major and led the Army Air Force Band. During the war, he was a passenger in an airplane that disappeared over the English Channel. His remains have never been found.
“We are thrilled to have been selected to produce this special program,” said Russ Hodge, founder and president of 3 Roads Communications. “It is an honor to be chosen to bring this program, and Major Miller’s legacy, to such a large television audience.”
The public TV broadcast of the concert, “A Glenn Miller Celebration,” honors Miller on the 75th anniversary of his disappearance. The concert was recorded on April 2 at the Strathmore Music Center in Bethesda, Md.
The TV program is expected to be broadcast nationally beginning on Veterans Day.
The concert was staged as a radio broadcast. The emcee was Murray Horwitz, Washington Performing Arts artist-in-residence and host of WAMU’s “The Big Broadcast.” The U.S. Air Force Airmen of Note provided the music with guest soloist Veronica Swift.
The television special was recorded using twelve ultra HD cameras.
