This is it!
The Symphony will be performing their Halloween Spooktacular this Friday at 7:30 PM. This event is so jam-packed full of special surprises that I’m not even sure what they all are.
The program is hugely varied, and also hugely entertaining. One highlight of the show is sure to be the two excellent vocal soloists that will be joining the symphony to perform selections from Phantom of the Opera. It’s a great chance to see this Halloween mainstay performed by top notch local talent.
Beyond this, there is definitely something for everyone in the program. Kids will enjoy the selections from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride, and a medley from the wizarding world of Harry Potter, taken from the film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Long-time classical music enthusiasts will also enjoy some of the “deeper tracks” on the program, including Bartok’s Four Transylvanian Dances, and Gliere’s Russian Sailor’s Dance.
However I am most excited about the part of the program that includes those classical pieces that are enjoyable for both children and adults, those that most of us grown-ups are familiar with, but for the younger audience will be first-time listens that will stick with them forever. Funeral March for a Marionette, Grieg’s March of the Trolls, and Brahms’ Hungarian Dance.
We hope to see you there! Bring your kids for an unforgettable Halloween treat!
