I guess this is the year for Broadway medleys! If you are not familiar with Mamma Mia!, it is a Broadway sensation that features songs by ABBA. It’s back to the 70’s! This medley is fifteen minutes long, but could easily be cut in length. This medley has an excellent piano accompaniment with running sixteenth notes and syncopated rhythms. All of the songs are solid vocally and have catchy melodies that make them fun to sing. Most of the songs, however, do not lend themselves very well to choreography, except for “Dancing Queen” and “Waterloo.” This may be a choice for a larger choir to sing at a Pops Concert. Perhaps your women’s choir would like to end the year with this one.
