The ESO Welcomes Back Finnish Vocal Sensations Rajaton for a Tribute to Queen!

The Music of Queen with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra & Rajaton

Tuesday, October 14, 2008- 7:30pm

Edmonton, AB Ķ The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra (ESO) is pleased to welcome back Finnish vocal sensation Rajaton. After dazzling their audience at their Winspear Centre debut in April, 2005, the Finnish a cappella group joined the ESO on June 10th, 2008 for an exciting salute to ABBA. Fresh off the heels of that triumph, Rajaton returns to rock the ESO stage for another salute - this time, the towering power pop of Queen on Tuesday, October 14th.

Edmonton audiences will be dancing in the aisles at the North American premiere of this Tribute performance. Rajaton will be performing classic Queen hits such as We Will Rock You, Somebody to Love, Another One Bites the Dust and many more.

Rajaton consists of Essi Wuorela (soprano), Virpi Moskari (soprano), Soila Sariola (alto), Jussi Chydenius (bass), Hannu Lepola (tenor), and Ahti Paunu (baritone). The group struck gold with their first-ever album with accompaniment - Rajaton sings ABBA, recorded with the Lahti Symphony. The album sold platinum in Finland, and has become a worldwide cult hit. Joining Rajaton and the ESO will be conductor Jaakko Kuusisto.

Tickets for this performance range from $36 to $53 (agency fees apply). Tickets are available through the Winspear Centre Box Office.
