Hunter Fuerste and His American Vintage Orchestra
The Galena Foundation Concert features the nationally recognized, 14-piece Hunter Fuerste and His Vintage Orchestra. You’ll be transported to another time with their authentic re-creations of the hits from the big band era of 1935 to 1945.
Orchestra Director, Hunter Fuerste, painstakingly scores the music for each of the musicians in his entire orchestra by listening to vintage recordings on 78 rpm records. He is a tremendously talented arranger with a genuine desire to re-create every sound and element of the big band genre.
Performances regularly feature the hits of Glenn Miller, Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, Harry James, Count Basie and many others.

The concert is an excellent opportunity to gather friends, family, employees, or even clients and customers for a wonderful evening of music and socializing.
