The Joint is Jumpin': Big Band Favorites

  • Miller Outdoor Theatre 6000 Hermann Park Drive Houston, TX, 77030 United States (map)

The greatest music of the Greatest Generation

Houston Chamber Choir’s second concert of the season boasts a program of hits from the Big Band Era that have won the hearts of listeners over many decades. The evening will include songs such as The Andrews Sisters’ “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” Fats Waller’s “The Joint is Jumpin’”, and Duke Ellington’s “Take the A Train.”  As with all concerts at Miller Outdoor Theatre, this will be a presentation open to the entire city of Houston, with ample free seating on the hill and around the park. 

Tickets for assigned seating under the canopy can be acquired by visiting the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the event.

This concert is sponsored in part by the City of Houston through the Miller Theatre Advisory Board.
