DISCO INFERNO: A '70s Celebration


Stuart Chafetz, conductor
Scott Coulter, vocalist
Jessica Hendy , vocalist
Tamika Lawrence, vocalist
John Boswell, piano
San Diego Symphony Orchestra


Everybody Dance! Disco is the sound of the '70s and it still has the power to get us “movin’ and groovin’.” Travel back to the days when Saturday Night Fever was a box-office smash, Donna Summer was the queen of the air waves and Beethoven had his first top-40 hit.

You’re invited to celebrate those disco days and boogie nights with a cast of New York’s top performers singing and dancing to super-hits by Abba, the Bee Gees, Gloria Gaynor, Barry Manilow, Donna Summer and more! The stage will be ablaze with that ‘70s sound and a trio of Broadway vocalists reminding you that “You Should be Dancin’, yeah!”

We invite all attendees to participate in our special costume contest for this night of funky fresh tunes. Show up in your best boogie-down attire and stop by our contest table on The Rady Shell Lawn for a chance to win a pack of four tickets to our "Dancing Queen: A Tribute to ABBA with Rajaton" concert this fall. Can yah dig it? The winner will be announced from the stage and receive an opportunity to make their Rady Shell debut, performing the YMCA with the orchestra and our special guest vocalists.
