David Steinquest, professor of music, will direct Austin Peay's percussion ensemble as members perform spooky theme music from popular movies and TV shows at 7:30 p.m., Monday, Oct. 28, in the concert hall of the music/mass communication building.

This year's program will include the theme from “The Twilight Zone,” “Hedwig's Theme” from the movie “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone,” “Tubular Bells” from the movie “The Exorcist,” two selections from Mussorgsky's “Pictures at an Exhibition,” and “March to the Scaffold” from Berlioz's “Symphonie Fantastique.”

In addition, there will be five drum-centered pieces, including the ensemble's popular composition for garbage cans.

Participating APSU faculty members are Francis Massinon (horn), Richard Steffen (trumpet), Stanley Yates (guitar) and Stephen Clark (alto saxophone).

The percussion ensemble also comprises students Adrian Baker, Allison Campbell, David Charlesworth, Natalie Felts, Theresa Holonich, Jamie Millis, Michael Oliver, Ryan Poston, Mary Shelton, Josh Smith, Benjamin Swisher, Brett Wade and Brandon Wilson.

The ensemble will be dressed in Halloween costume and audience members are invited to do the same.

The concert is open to the public. Admission is two cans of food, which will be donated to Loaves and Fishes, or $2.
