About

Spooky Sounds and Scary Tales
Brad Lubman, conductor
Lynda Carter, narrator
 
Where do vampires, werewolves, and mummies hide out during the day?
 
On this day, they're hiding behind their instruments on the Concert Hall stage. Keep the Halloween costume party going and come dressed in your spookiest get-up for this "spirited" Sunday afternoon concert event. Conductor Brad Lubman and the NSO will be wearing their own trick-or-treat outfits as they perform Steven Reineke's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow with narrator Lynda Carter and music from other scary tales. It's guaranteed to be a ghoulish good time! For age 5 and up.
 
Come early for the Musical Instrument "Petting Zoo." An hour before each NSO Family Concert, young concertgoers can get up close and hands-on with the instruments they'll see played on the stage--from violins, trumpets, and oboes to trombones and percussion--in the Kennedy Center Atrium. A project of the Women's Committee for the NSO.
 
Stay after the 3 p.m. concerts for a Kids' Chat. Following the 3 p.m. concert, young audience members can ask questions and hear engaging stories in an up-close-and-personal talk with the concert artists.
