The 42nd Annual Glenn Miller Festival was a huge success.

Guests from all over the world visited Clarinda for the 4 day Festival, which featured the World-Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra, the Blue Beginners from Mito Japan, the GMBS Big Band, Lady Luck Trio from Utah, John Morgan and His Big Band Orchestra from Des Moines, Iowa, the UNO Jazz Band Ensemble from Omaha, Nebraska, and the Shades of Blue USAF Jazz Band from St. Louis, Missouri.

Highlights of the Festival were the 41st Annual Music Scholarship competition, two free concerts, a kick-off pick, vendor fair, a panel discussion, GMA Archive talk, the Chattanooga Choo Choo exhibit at the Museum, and lots of interesting exhibits and displays.
