The Haunted Mansion Concert
The otherworldly hum of violins, the adrenaline-boosting thump of a timpani, the mournful cry of a clarinet—orchestras can be pretty unsettling when they put their collective mind to it. With Zombie Apocalypse, the Salt Lake Pops Studio Orchestra harnesses that sonic creepiness, turning its strings, brass, and mallets to fittingly spooky tunes from The Phantom of the Opera, Nightmare Before Christmas, and the score to World of Warcraft. The concert sets the tone for a weekend of autumnal winds, ghost stories, and those terrifying orange-and-black taffies no one eats.
Salt Lake Pops Studio Orchestra
Under the guidance of founder and director Nathaniel Drew, the Salt Lake Pops Studio Orchestra's skilled musicians tackle movie scores, pop hits, and other earworms—adding a dose of social media for good measure. A YouTube sensation (a recent Bruno Mars cover has garnered nearly two million views), the Pops maintains a robust blog and encourages audiences to request songs and comment on the current repertoire. Many of its stirring arrangements can leap from stereos into living rooms thanks to sheet music posted online, a gesture that allows fans to tackle "Firework" and "Skyfall" on their very best kazoo.
