Conductor: Ben Parry
Soloist: Imogen Parry
Following the success of our Come and Sing The Sound of Music (2016), we are delighted to welcome Ben Parry back to Edinburgh to conduct a fabulous concert of the very best of ABBA.
Whether you’re a budding Björn, an aspiring Agnetha, or just enjoy a good sing-along, then this event is for you!
You’ll rehearse with a live band before boogying your way through an early evening concert. And don’t forget the ‘Winner Takes It All’ fancy dress competition!
Ben Parry has a busy career as a composer, conductor, arranger, singer and producer in both classical and light music fields. He is Artistic Director of the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain, Assistant Director of Music at King’s College, Cambridge and co-director of London Voices, with whom he has worked on the soundtracks of many major films, including The Hobbit, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games and Spectre. His compositions and arrangements have been heard at the BBC Proms and on the hit TV series, Glee.
