Captain America once said, "'Twas music that soothed the savage beast." Although he was talking about his short-lived nemesis Dr. Angry Parakeet, it's just as true for animals of the human persuasion. Soothe your savage insides with today’s Groupon to the “Haunted Classics” concert at Virginia Symphony Orchestra in Norfolk’s Chrysler Hall on Saturday, Oct. 30 at 8 p.m. The “Haunted Classics” show promises to be a frightfully harmonious show, as the orchestra will play three grim and spooky classics—Saint-Saëns' “Danse Macabre,” Rachmaninoff’s “The Isle of the Dead, Op. 29,” and Boito’s “Prologue in Heaven” from Mefistofele. Led by JoAnn Falletta, conductor and music director by day and werewolf-huntress by night, the immensely talented musicians in the historic Virginia Symphony Orchestra have performed memorable performances at the Kennedy Center and New York's Carnegie Hall. Guests are also encouraged to wear Halloween constumes for the performance. Call ahead to reserve seats. Groups must reserve seats at the same time to be seated together.

Reviews

The Virginia Symphony has a 4.6-star average from Ticketmaster reviewers:

  • Once again the Virginia Symphony Orchestra have demonstrated their greatness. Top flight performances are assured for virtually every concert. – Johann3, Ticketmaster
  • The playing was superb. The accoustacts were perfect. Sat right in front of the controlers at the back of the hall and would like to get those seats every time. – SwingListener, Ticketmaster

Virginia Symphony Orchestra

Pay enough attention to the career of JoAnn Falletta, and you could easily conclude she's actually twins or triplets. She's the music director of not only the Virginia Symphony Orchestra but the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, and serves as principal guest conductor of the Phoenix Symphony, among other institutional ties. (She's also conducted on Grammy-winning recordings for the Naxos label.) Under her baton, the VSO rotates among Norfolk, Newport News, Williamsburg, and Virginia Beach with traditional classical programs, pops nights, and shorter family concerts that open with craft activities and an instrument "petting zoo." A "wear-what's-comfortable" dress code and pre-concert Behind the Notes talks ensure a decidedly inviting atmosphere even for symphony newbies.
