From page B6 | August 23, 2013 |

As part of its 20th anniversary tour, the upbeat, all-singing-all-dancing-all-American celebration of swing jazz returns to the Harris Center/Three Stages, 10 College Parkway in Folsom. Much more than a concert, “In The Mood” presents a retro 1940s big band revue featuring the In The Mood Singers and Dancers with the sensational String of Pearls Big Band Orchestra.

In the 1940s, the combination of up-tempo big band instrumentals and intimate, romantic ballads set the mood for a future filled with promise, hope and prosperity.

In The Mood will perform on Tuesday, Aug. 27 at 7:30 p.m.; Wednesday, Aug. 28 at 2 and 7:30 p.m.; and Thursday, Aug. 29 at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $25 to $39 with premium tickets available for $49. Tickets are available online at harriscenter.net or from Harris Center ticket office at 916-608-6888 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time.

Parking is included in the price of the ticket.

In The Mood began as a celebration of an unusual era in American music, the 1940s — the Swing era. On radio, in theaters and ballrooms, the Big Bands were drawing record crowds. Vocal groups and soloists sang a repertoire of great songs and for the last time in the 20th century, the entire country shared a common popular music.

This body of song did much to sustain national morale during World War II, the pivotal event of the ’40s. The National Archives in Washington, DC brought In The Mood to its audiences as part of the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of WWII and the response was extraordinary, with crowds lining up for hours before curtain time. The engagement was twice extended.

The 20th anniversary year performances continue to bring the magic and memories that moved the nation’s spirit for audiences throughout the United States and overseas.

Through authentic choreography from Alex Sanchez, veteran of 10 Broadway musicals, a score of more than 40 unforgettable hits such as “Tuxedo Junction,” “Over There,” “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” ‘I’ll Be Seeing You” and many more, the talents of In The Mood Singers and Dancers Katrina Asmar, Joshua David Cavanaugh, Dan Faber, Stephanie Gaertner, Laura La Cara and Nick Pankuch and the swinging rhythms of the String of Pearls Big Band Orchestra, In The Mood is a testament to the music and lyrics of America that is timeless.
