Eisemann Center Presents the internationally acclaimed singer Debby Boone and The World Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra in "Swing This" on April 25 at 8 p.m. at the Eisemann Center for Performing Arts, 2351 Performance Drive in Richardson, Texas 75082. Tickets range from $39-$56 and are available for purchase online or by calling the Ticket Office at 972-744-4650. 

In 1977, Debby Boone earned instant fame when "You Light Up My Life" became one of the biggest songs in history, charting #1 on Billboard for 10 straight weeks and selling in excess of four million albums. That year she received the Grammy for Best New Artist and has since received an additional seven Grammy nominations, winning two more awards. In 2008, the song was ranked #7 in Billboard’s 50th Anniversary All-Time Top-Charting Songs. 

In 2013, Debby released her 13th studio album, a take on the songs and experience of the Las Vegas of the ’60’s entitled "Swing This." The accompanying show, which premiered at New York’s prestigious Carlyle Hotel in March of that year, has memories and stories shared from Debby’s formative years when her father, Pat Boone, was headlining at the Sands and Sahara Hotels. "Swing This" is a true reflection of the music, glamour and pure exhilaration of that golden age in Vegas that inspired Debby to be a performer in the first place. The insider stories, beautiful costumes and fabulous arrangements by the renowned New York arranger, John Oddo, played by The World Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra all make up, in Debby’s own words, “The party I’ve been waiting to throw my whole life.” 

The World Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra is the most popular and sought after big band in the world today for both concert and swing dance engagements. With its unique jazz sound, the Glenn Miller Orchestra is considered to be one of the greatest bands of all time. The present Glenn Miller Orchestra was formed in 1956 and has been touring consistently since, playing an average of 300 live dates a year all around the world. The Glenn Miller Orchestra is led by Music Director and Male Vocalist Nick Hilscher.
