Their name means "boundless" in their native Finland, and that's exactly how this acclaimed a cappella sextet approaches their music! Rajaton's infectious energy and singing style have made them a bona fide pop phenomenon on the world stage--and now they descend upon Washington to pay tribute to another Scandinavian supergroup with the music of ABBA. They'll have everyone up on their feet for electrifying versions of "Dancing Queen," "Mamma Mia," "Take a Chance on Me," and other beloved ABBA hits, all specially arranged for full orchestra. After this "dazzling show of invention and great vocals" (The Toronto Star), audiences will definitely be saying "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!" more Rajaton!

Performance Timing: Approximately 2 hours, including one 15-minute intermission.

NOTE: The ensemble Rajaton will sign CDs post-concert in the Concert Hall Foyer following the NSO Pops performances on Friday, May 30 and Saturday, May 31.
