The Glenn Miller Orchestra had Grand Forks residents tapping their toes and singing along to hits of the swing era this weekend. 

More than 100 people set up lawn chairs around the Myra Centennial Pavilion on Sunday in Grand Forks to take in the show.

The band played music made famous by Glenn Miller --- a swing-era  musician, composer and bandleader --- including "Moonlight Serenade," "Little Brown Jug" and "American Patrol."
