Many of the musical arrangements were written by Vic Schoen, the conductor and arranger for the Andrews Sisters, and music director for both Universal and Paramount Pictures. Experience the swing, the rhythm and the jazzy, brassy, sentimental music of this pivotal time in America’s history at Center Theater in Long Beach.
