The Glenn Miller Orchestra — known as one of the greatest big bands of all time — will perform its greatest hits at the Capitol Theatre on June 21 at 6 p.m.

The orchestra will perform one night only in Salt Lake City, performing standards such as "In the Mood," "Moonlight Serenade," "Chattanooga Choo Choo," "Pennsylvania 6-5000," "String of Pearls" and "Tuxedo Junction."

"[These are] songs that everyone remembers," said the event's producer Didier Morissoneau in a release. "This is a not-to-miss show for jazz and swing fans alike or the incurable romantics who want to step back in time."

You can get tickets at the ArtTix Box Office, 50 W. 200 South, Salt Lake City, or http://www.arttix.org or also at ArtTix's charge-by-phone number 1-888-451-2787.

Tickets prices range from $60 to $70, with taxes and service fees not included.

Miller died at the age of 40 when he was traveling to entertain U.S. troops in France during World War II; his plane disappeared in bad weather over the English Channel.

He left behind his wife, the former Helen Burger.
