The Sunshine Coast’s premiere vocal group, Oriana Choir, presents Dancing Queen, an exciting and energetic tribute show featuring the best of ABBA and Queen May 11 at Stella Maris Catholic School Performance Venue and May 18 at The J in Noosa, with a matinee and evening concert at each location.
These two icons of the Seventies have created an impressive body of timeless music. Their creativity, vitality, dynamism, exciting live presentations and sheer song-writing brilliance remain unparalleled. Their much-loved songs are performed and enjoyed the world over.
“This show has been much anticipated,” said Oriana president, Melissa Innes. “We’ve prepared this show three times now but were a covid casualty! We’re so excited to finally bring it to Coast audiences.”
With unequalled classics such as Bohemian Rhapsody, We Are the Champions, Somebody To Love, Mamma Mia, Dancing Queen, The Winner Takes It All, and many others, this show is certain to be a treat for music lovers of all ages.
“This music is absolute gold,” said Ms Innes. “We have so enjoyed rehearsing and putting it together in a way we hope truly honours both of these legendary groups.”
Oriana is no stranger to the music of Queen and ABBA, having performed the songs of both bands many times. With the 70-voice chorus conducted by Elisabeth Wallis Gaedtke and accompanied by a live band, you will be jiggling in your seat and tapping your toes in no time! Also performing will be the Sunshine Coast Youth Choir conducted by Annie Wilson.
