Thank You for the Music: A Celebration of ABBA
The Calgary Men's Chorus presents Thank You For The Music: A Celebration of ABBA | May 21 - 4:00 PM & 7:30 PM
Tickets are available online and at the door.
On November 5th, 2021, ABBA broke a forty-year silence with a brand new album, “Voyage”. Once a 70’s pop sensation, the quartet is here to cultivate new audiences. Relive those moments in discos! Teach young people about the true icon! The joyful moment has come, because this is the celebration of ABBA!
Artistic Director’s Note:
Growing up in Japan as a kid, I did not listen to many songs in English; it was not until I became interested in them in my late teens when I actively started looking for them. But I knew who ABBA was because they had had big hits even in Japan. Together with The Carpenters, The Beatles, and Celine Dion among others, they are now one of few foreign artists that most Japanese people can recognize.
Last year, this Swedish quartet who was once a 70’s pop sensation finally broke their forty-year silence with their new album “Voyage”. Unlike their last album that was made in the midst of two divorces, there is a strong message of love, hope and forgiveness. Would there be a better excuse than this to have an ABBA-themed concert?? I didn’t think so. I didn’t think we could miss this opportunity to admire one of our most important queer icons.
Your time to relive your youth has come! Your time to teach your children about the true legend has come! Join us, sing with us, and dance with us because this is our celebration of ABBA!
