Local historian Donald MacDonald will present an afternoon of music and memories centered on the life of Glenn Miller and his renowned orchestra. The program will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 3, at Kismet’s Secret Garden, 72 Main St., Cold Spring. Miller was especially popular during the 1940s – which MacDonald refers to as “the bittersweet decade.”

The program will feature recordings of Miller’s music interspersed with readings about his life as he rose to lead that era’s most popular dance orchestra. Seating is limited. This is an outdoor event, so dress appropriately for weather. MacDonald said the only admission is “your presence.”
