“Grease’s music is iconic! Said Jung-Ho Pak, Artistic Director and Conductor, Cape Symphony. “It’s a throwback to the 50s with artists like Frankie Valli and Sha-Na-Na and a bit of the 1970s with Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees involved as songwriter and singer. Plus the incredible songs performed by John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John and Stockard Channing that we all know and love. It will be so much fun to hear the orchestra perform live on such a beloved film.
