Robbins Pops
Light those lava lamps and boogie to the beats of disco hits

That 70s Showcase –
Disco Days and Boogie Nights

Friday, September 25th – 8:00 pm
Saturday, September 26th – 8:00 pm

Edmonton, AB … Your Edmonton Symphony Orchestra is once again offering an electrifying lineup of Robbins Pops concerts in the 2009-2010 performance season. On September 25th & 26th, our ever-popular series kicks off and brings Pops master Jack Everly back to the Winspear Centre. With an all-star cast of singers and dancers joining your ESO in That 70s Showcase - Disco Days and Boogie Nights, it will be a night to remember, groovin’ and shakin’ to your favourite tunes in our salute to a decade.

No matter what crowd you ran with in the 70s, we’ve got the music to match. Vocalists Chapter 6, N’Kenge, Farah Alvin, and Anne Beck perform disco anthems like I Will Survive, monster rock hits like Bohemian Rhapsody, plus familiar show-stopping medleys from the likes of ABBA and The Bee Gees. They’re all blended into a one-of-a-kind show of memories and magic as only conductor and host Jack Everly can present.

Dust off those polyester suits, polish up those platform shoes, and boogie on down to the Winspear Centre Box Office for tickets. Ticket prices range from $24 – $79 (agency fees apply). Call (780) 428-1414 or purchase online at

The next performance of the Robbins Pops series takes place on October 30th & 31st, as your ESO, conductor Bruce Hangen, and a creepy cast present a ghoulish evening of spine-tingling music in Halloween: The Concert.

This series is generously supported by Bill and Mary Jo Robbins.
Friday evening’s performance is generously sponsored by Sobeys.

The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, marking its 58th season in 2009-2010, has taken its place as one of Canada's foremost orchestral ensemble. Its current roster includes 56 musicians from Canada and around the world, performing a wide-ranging repertoire from the great classical masterworks to pops and children's concerts. The presence of the orchestra and its enrichment of the community's quality of life are key elements in the stature and profile of Edmonton on the national and international scene.
