The 76-member ensemble will perform two Halloween favorites from the classical repertoire - Danse Macabre and Night on Bald Mountain - and a medley of tunes from the Broadway musical Phantom of the Opera. The string orchestra will perform Dia de los Muertos, based on the Mexican holiday “Day of the Dead,” as well as other selections from pop music and the movies.
Special guests for the evening will be the Allegro Ensemble from Elizabethtown Area Middle School and an honors ensemble from Bear Creek School. These string musicians will join forces to perform Rosin-Eating Zombies from Outer Space. The concert will close with all 120 students performing A Rockin’ Halloween. The community is invited to this free concert, which will conclude with refreshments.
