The 4th Annual “EEK! At The Greek!” welcomes families to a spine-tingling night with the Symphony In The Glen. Before the performance, a trick-or-treat village welcomes children with Halloween-themed arts and crafts, face painting, and a costume contest. Once the concert begins, actor Bruce Boxleitner joins the musicians to bring Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Tell-Tale Heart” to life, adding an element of the literary macabre to an evening of spooky favorites by Stravinskly, Saint-Saëns, and John Williams.
- Stravinsky—”Infernal Dance” from The Firebird: Inspired by a fairytale from Russian folklore, this ballet score hits all the classic fairytale notes—a dashing prince captures the titular magical firebird, but releases it in exchange for help against a terrible evil, the demon Kastchei.
- Saint-Saëns—Danse Macabre: The orchestral tone poem paints a picture of skeletons leaping and dancing at midnight, with the violin taking on the role of Death itself. When the oboe pipes in, standing in for a rooster’s crow, the party is over and all the skeletons have to remember where they put their cell phones.
- Gounod—Funeral March of a Marionette: Famous as the theme for Alfred Hitchcock Presents, this jaunty, darkly funny procession will be led by child conductors.
- Mussorgsky—”The Gnome” from Pictures at an Exhibition: The first movement of the composer’s art-inspired suite stops and starts with brash crashes of sound, evoking images of a squat gnome lurching through the brush.
- Williams—Devil’s Dance: The prolific composer penned this piece for The Witches of Eastwick, putting his own cunning take on a tarantella played on the violin.
- Stalling—”Skeleton Dance” from Silly Symphonies: The Symphony In The Glen will play the original score for Disney’s classic short as it flickers to life on stage.
