Annual Halloween Concert: Symphonic Scare

Long before the age of Hollywood, orchestral composers were crafting spine-tingling, bone-chilling music as part of their symphonies, tone poems, and suites. The USO showcases such truly frightening excerpts by Ludwig van Beethoven, Hector Berlioz, Gustav Holst, Gustav Mahler, and Dmitri Shostakovich, along with selections by John Williams. The Hyde Park School of Dance joins the USO for two family-friendly performances with costumes, story-telling, and special effects with an appearance by singers in the University Chorus. Audience costumes encouraged! 

TWO PERFORMANCES! 7pm and an encore at 9pm.

Free admission. Donations appreciated: $10 / $5 students & children.
