About POPS Rocks ABBA: Mamma Mia! and more...

The Philly POPS puts on its dancing shoes for POPS Rocks ABBA: Mamma Mia! and more... November 17, 20 and 21 at the Kimmel Cultural Campus.

Music Director and Principal Conductor David Charles Abell and the full Philly POPS orchestra will take audiences through ABBA's career, highlighting tunes that soared to the top of the charts in the '70s and '80s. Favorites include: "Dancing Queen," "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!," and "Chiquitita." This performance marks Abell's first performance back with the POPS in Verizon Hall since 2019.

"ABBA's music is pure joy-which is something I think we all could use about now," said David Charles Abell. "Their music is a perfect example of pop, and the full POPS orchestra will bring plenty of fun and excitement to these arrangements and orchestrations. And, as a Scandinavian group, Rajaton adds an extra layer of authenticity."

Joining the POPS is Finnish vocal group Rajaton (Rah-ya-tahn). Last seen with the POPS in 2014, Rajaton performs worldwide and has released 16 different albums in their over-20-year career. They currently have one double platinum, three platinum and eight gold records in Finland, with worldwide sales of over 400,000.

Tickets start at $35 and are available at www.phillypops.org/abba.
