Super Trouper – Vanska Bringing ABBA Into The Concert Hall

Osmo Vänskä, artistic director of the Minnesota Orchestra, will conduct his musicians playing his own arrangements of music by the 1970s Swedish pop supergroup ABBA as part of the 2005-06 season, announced today. While classical purists might view this as “Waterloo,” Vänskä says that expanding musical horizons is “The name of the game.”
