Glenn Miller Orchestra holds workshop for Onalaska students

ONALASKA, Wis. - Some Onalaska students had a rare opportunity Thursday night to jam with some of the best jazz musicians in the nation.

The world famous Glenn Miller Orchestra stopped by Onalaska High School for a workshop.

The band has been playing for more than 60 years, mostly jazz and swing music.

All interested student musicians could take part in different clinics and learn directly from the professionals.


"We're really excited about the jazz education component with the clinics, I think that's really going to inspire the next generation to play music like the Glenn Miller Orchestra plays," said Onalaska Band Director Dawson Strutt.

The Orchestra also put on a concert. Dave and Barb Skogen sponsored the clinic and concert.
