WMKV Radio brings Harry James Orchestra to Music Hall Ballroom

On Tuesday, October 13, from 7-10:00 p.m., the legendary Harry James Orchestra will fill historic Music Hall Ballroom with music from the swing era and beyond. The Harry James Orchestra, led by Fred Radke, performs a one-night only dance and concert as part of WMKV Public Radio’s 20th Anniversary celebration. The three-hour dance and concert will benefit public radio WMKV 89.3FM which is simulcast on 89.9FM WLHS. Tickets are $30 ($35 day of show) and can be purchased at the Aronoff Center and Music Hall Ticket Offices, by calling (513)621-2787, or online at http://www.cincinnatiarts.org. Discount parking for $3.00 is also available.

“The Harry James Orchestra is known for being one of the best swing dance bands on tour,” says WMKV station director George Zahn. “Dancers of all ages fill the floor at their concerts, and we plan on Cincinnati’s dancers showing up in force and filling Music Hall Ballroom’s 22,000 square-foot dance floor.”

The Harry James Orchestra is led by trumpeter Fred Radke. A conductor, composer, arranger and recording artist with his own Swingin’ Big Band, Radke played lead trumpet under Harry James himself, a “dream come true” for the then young musician. In 1989, six years after James’ death, the Harry James Estate and Columbia Artists asked Radke to lead the Harry James Orchestra for a 50th anniversary concert. He has been leading the orchestra ever since.

In the words of Harry James, “Band leaders must be like automobile manufacturers before the war. They must be bringing out new models all the time. We have to vary our programs, playing sweet numbers and jump numbers, and we have to play them different ways.” This philosophy still drives today’s Harry James Orchestra, which tours throughout the United States and Canada. Radke also produced and recorded classic Harry James Orchestra hits in a four-volume set entitled Reminiscing, featuring Radke and his Swingin’ Big Band.

The Harry James Orchestra concert for WMKV 89.3FM Public Radio is made possible by the support of Mercedes Benz of Ft. Mitchell, MyMedicareQuestion.com and ArtsWave.
