Fall Horn Festival
This event has concluded.

"Horns Go Halloween – so much fun, it’s scary!”
Music is a powerful force that adds so much to our lives. Think of the heart-wrenching beauty of Samuel Barber’s “Adagio for Strings” and the “Adagietto” from Gustav Mahler’s 5th Symphony. Think of the power of Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries” or the end of Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture” and the joy at the end of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. Now think how you might feel when you hear Mussorgsky’s “Night on Bald Mountain” or “Dreams of a Witches’ Sabbath” from Symphonie Fantastique by Berlioz. And finally, think about your favorite horror movie—much of the “horror” comes from the music (Psycho; Jaws; Halloween)—it can be eerie, spooky, mysterious, macabre, and downright chilling! As Halloween casts its shadow over us, let’s explore the dark side of music with some “creepy classics.”
