KAMLOOPS - Kamloops Symphony is teaming up with Jeans ‘n Classics once again, this time performing the iconic songs of ABBA. Dancing Queen – The Music of ABBA will be at Sagebrush Theatre Oct. 23 and 24.
Lead vocalists Katalin Kiss, Andrea Koziol, Stephanie Martin, and Lis Soderberg, along with the Jeans ‘n Classics band will perform songs like Take a Chance on Me, Waterloo, Fernando and Money, Money, Money.
This performance was chosen by audience members at last year’s sold-out performances of The Beatles – Sgt. Pepper.
Jeans ‘n Classics has been combining rock with symphonies for almost 20 years. The London, Ontario based orchestra rock act’s arrangements make for a great live show experience. Their artists bring their original voices, while accurately interpreting the music of world-class, legendary rock groups.
ABBA was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010. The Swedish group was formed in 1972 and became one of the most commercially successful popular music groups, with hits that topped the charts worldwide from 1975 – 1982. The group’s 1974 entry, Waterloo, won the Eurovision Song Contest and was later chosen as the best song in the history of the competition at the contest’s 50th anniversary celebration.
Audience members will hear Waterloo and other favourite ABBA hits performed by the artists from Jeans ‘n Classics with a full symphony orchestra. They are encouraged to bring their friends and add to the fun by digging out their bell-bottoms and platform shoes.
