Ankush Kumar Bahl, conductor
Is it ever cool to "boo" the orchestra? It is on Halloween! And during their Halloween Spooktacular, NSO musicians dressed up as ghosts, ghouls, and goblins just might peek out from behind their instruments to go "BOO" back at you!
Come early outfitted in your spookiest 'ween wear for pre-concert trick-or-treating and a special Haunted Hall Musical Instrument "Petting Zoo." A project of the Women's Committee for the NSO.
Then take your seats for a "spirited" performance as an incognito Ankush Kumar Bahl conducts selections from Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique, John Williams's Imperial March from Star Wars, Dukas's Sorcerer's Apprentice with narration, Prokofiev's Cinderella Suite No. 1, and more. For age 5 and up.
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.
