Idaho State-Civic Symphony to host ‘Halloween Spooktacular’ family concert Oct. 26

Posted October 22, 2013

The Idaho State-Civic Symphony’s Family Concert, “Halloween Spooktacular,” sponsored by Heinz, will be held on Saturday, Oct. 26 in the Jensen Grand Concert Hall of the Stephens Performing Arts Center.

Conductor Grant Harville has designed a program to appeal to family members of all ages, and Thomas Kloss and music education majors have planned interesting and fun pre-concert musical games and activities. From 1 to 2 p.m., the rotunda will be the site of a “Musical Fair” where children can visit a musical “petting zoo” to see close up some of the orchestral instruments, discover how the sound is produced, and even try them. Singing games and other musical education activities will be set up in other areas of the rotunda; parents and children will be able to choose the ones most age-appropriate.

The public is encouraged to bring the whole family, dress in Halloween costumes, and enjoy the pre-concert musical activities, followed by a rousing concert with familiar music from “Raiders of the Lost Ark” and “Pirates of the Caribbean,” as well as the delightful children’s musical story “Peter and the Wolf.”

Tickets are $12 per person or $27 for a family of six. The pre-concert activities are included with the ticket price. Tickets to the concert are available through the Performing Arts Center’s Box Office at 282-3595 or Paula Corbin at 282-3330. Tickets are also available at Vickers Western Stores located at 1460 Yellowstone.
