The greatest big band of the 1940s, The Glenn Miller Orchestra, a concert spectacular is returning to Australia next month, and will be making a stop in Nowra.
The concert spectacular features the unforgettable music of the 1940s and is set to be a sentimental journey down memory lane to celebrate the Glenn Miller Orchestra's 82nd anniversary.
The concert will star at the Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre on Sunday, September 22.
Chelsea Arnold from Missouri, USA, is the lead female vocalist and said she's looking forward to her first trip down under
"I couldn't be more excited, Australia has been on my bucket list for a long time. I'd especially love to go snorkelling in the Great Barrier Reef," she said.
"I'm also looking forward to meeting the people of Australia and continuing the Glen Miller legacy."
Chelsea has been singing for as long as she can remember. Her mum was a country music singer and Chelsea first took to the stage at the tender age of two.
She's been singing professionally for the past two years in Branson, Missouri.
After being approached by Glen Miller at an event, she soon found herself in the world of jazz music - a lifelong passion. She's now been singing with the orchestra for the past eight months.
After the two month tour of Australia comes to an end, Chelsea will be following a slightly different path, returning to her studies at the University of Nebraska to do pre-law.
