The Music of ABBA Arrives In Winnipeg

You can dance
You can jive
Having the time of your life
Ooh, see that girl
Watch that scene
Dig in the dancing queen

Dancing Queen has to be one of my absolute favourite ABBA songs. The danceable groove, the memories it provides and of course the lyrics – feels like they were written just for me!

ARRIVAL FROM SWEDEN – THE MUSIC OF ABBA WITH THE WINNIPEG SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA is coming to Winnipeg September 22-24 at the Centennial Concert Hall.

Arrival has toured 56 nations, sold out 35 US tours, and performed symphony shows with over 60 orchestras around the world. ABBA is still Sweden’s biggest music export. Their passion and sound continues to live on through their fantastic music, from generation to generation. Their legacy will live forever.

I am so curious to see how the symphony orchestra and the music of Abba intertwine. I have partnered with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra to host a giveaway to one of my fabulous readers!

One winner will receive 2 tickets to the Friday, September 22 opening night show at 8pm [no substitutions].

Will I see you there? You can’t win if you don’t enter, and don’t forget to read the terms and conditions!

GIVEAWAY TIME!

Good luck all!

    Hard to choose just one, but if I have to pick one it’s “Knowing me, knowing you”. Thanks for the chance to win this generous giveaway.? It’s been a long time since I’ve enjoyed the WSO and I would be thrilled to win this so I can bring my daughter. I think she would love a night out with her Dad and some great music.

    Knowing me, knowing you is my mom’s favourite song although she loves them all. I would love to be able to take her as my dad passed away recently and a night out would be good for her. Thanks for the opportunity!

    Love the music of ABBA, my favourite is Does Your Mother Know. It reminds me of the fun I used to have going to parties when I was young, dancing to the music of ABBA. My daughter uses it as her ring tone now.

    My husband and I went to rainbow stage to see Mamma Mia last month. I have been an Abba fan for 40 years!!! I cannot pick one song as each one brings back a different memory for me.

    It’s hard to choose… I’ll go with Waterloo, because of the amazing scene in Muriel’s Wedding.

    It would be terrific to
    win two Tickets to The Music of ABBA
    with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra.
    In response to your question of
    What is your favourite ABBA song and why?
    My favourite ABBA song is Chiquitita
    because it was my dad’s favourite song by them.
    My dad died in 1999 and whenever i listen to this song i think of him.
    Thank you for having this ticket giveaway.

    Any ABBA song is my favourite! When I met my husband he was a huge ABBA fan! My memory is of us meeting 27years ago! 🙂

    I love Abba. But I’m going to answer my 7 year olds son favourite song. It is Waterloo. He’d love this. He just discovered Abba this summer and lives them!

    “Take a chance on me” is one of my favourites. The music is all so upbeat.
    I’d love to follow up my Rainbow Stage experience with tickets to the WSO Abba concert.

    I love Take a Chance on me – partly because it just has such a great beat but also because it’s sung during one of my favourite scenes in Mamma Mia the musical (which was so awesome at Rainbow Stage this summer!)
