MANIA - The ABBA Tribute (Formerly ABBA MANIA)
October 28, 2022
The Bergen Performing Arts Center
Englewood, New Jersey
The Bergen Performing Arts Center is a lovely mid-sized venue that has always treated us well. It has been a couple of years since we played here, so it was good to return.
This evening's performance was made extra special by the return of a local children's choir who performed 'Fernando' and 'I Have A Dream' with us. We last used a choir several years ago. I am not sure why we stopped, but if memory serves me correctly, the consistency of finding a quality choir became a problem. Taking that into consideration, some were a bit nervous, but in the end, it worked out beautifully, and the children were a joy. They took it very seriously and came well-prepared. I was glad to see this, for I have always had a soft spot in my heart for that part of our show. I watch and listen to the children sing, and I am swept away back to my youth when I loved and cherished singing in a choir. So many memories and emotions sweep over me as long as their performance is good. :-)
