The Austin Peay State University Percussion Ensemble will present the 2010 Halloween Concert in two back-to-back performances.

The concert, historically a sell-out performance, will be at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., Friday, Oct. 29 in the Music/Mass Communication Concert Hall.

This year’s performance includes plenty of tricks and treats, including guest appearances by Stanley Yates on guitar, Francis Massinon on harpsichord, Matt DeVore on drumset, Casey Brock on bass guitar and Claire Davis on harp, as well as help from the Breaking Wind band and the Wailing Banshees chorus.

The program includes music from the movies “Halloween” and “Poltergeist,” and the television shows “The Addams Family” and “The Munsters.” Nods to the rock group Led Zeppelin include “Black Dog” and “Bonham.”

In addition, there is classical music from Mussorgsky’s “Night On Bald Mountain” and the classic electronic pop hit “Popcorn.” “Pogo Sticks,” by the computer music sensation Animusic, also will be performed.

Garbage can music also will be part of the program, with the masterpiece “Noises On” to be performed with guest garbologists Chris Brooks and Chris Crockarell as soloists.

The hall is decorated, all the performers dress in costume, there is special lighting, and the mass communication program provides live video feed.

Admission is two cans of food, which will be donated to Loaves & Fishes, or $3. Tickets are on sale in the department of music office, located in the Music/Mass Communication Building, Room 139.
