I would suggest to bring a bottle of water and small snake for the intermission.

Featuring Edward C. Harris, conductor

The Wind Symphony’s concert season — “Poltergeists, Passion and Paws!” — is an eclectic and entertaining mix of musical themes. The season kicks off with a Halloween-costume concert entitled Witches’ Brouhaha.

Members of the audience (and musicians in the Wind Symphony) are invited to wear their Halloween costumes to the performance. A panel of guest judges will award prizes for the best costumes.

The Wind Symphony will perform excerpts from the Broadway musicals Phantom of the Opera and Wicked, as well as music from John Williams’ Harry Potter movie scores. The concert also features these creepy classics:

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (Paul Dukas)

Danse Macabre (Camille Saint-Saëns)

Prélude, Op. 3, No. 2 (Sergei Rachmaninoff)

Toccata and Fugue in D Minor (Johan Sebastian Bach)
