About

Halloween Spooktacular: The Sequel!
Ankush Kumar Bahl, conductor
 
When is it ever cool to "boo" the orchestra? On Halloween, of course! But watch out, because at this frightfully fun follow-up to the NSO's popular Halloween Spooktacular program, ghoulishly attired musicians might "BOO" you from behind their instruments in return! Don your spookiest 'ween wear and come early for pre-concert trick-or-treating plus a special Haunted Hall Musical Instrument "Petting Zoo." Then take your seats for a "spirited" performance as an incognito Ankush Kumar Bahl conducts a new round of goosebump-inducing favorites including the Toccata and Fugue in D minor--J.S. Bach's most famous organ piece--featuring the Concert Hall's new Rubenstein Family Organ, the "Ritual Fire Dance" from Manuel de Falla's ballet score El amor brujo ("Love, the Magician"), "Anitra's Dance" from Edvard Grieg's music for the play Peer Gynt, and a selection from John Williams's score for the Harry Potter films.  
 
For age 5 and up.

Performance Timing: Approximately 60 minutes, with no intermission

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.
