Shadows from Below

The USO’s 2019 Halloween concert features an array of eerie, mysterious, and spine-tingling works:  Mussorgsky’s justly famous Night on Bald Mountain;  Rachmaninoff’s haunting tone poem, The Isle of the Dead; and Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor, as arranged by the legendary Leopold Stokowski – plus music from Phantom of the Opera and Pirates of the Caribbean.  Once again the Hyde Park School of Dance contributes their energetic choreography to the mix, and costumes, story-telling, and special effects enhance this annual fun-filled, family-friendly event.  Two performances!  Audience costumes encouraged.  Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. 

An encore performance will follow at 9 p.m.

Donations at door: $10 / $5 students & children
