Psycho solo? Must be time for the Halloween concert!

October 22, 2001

Last year's Percussion Ensemble Halloween Concert was a standing-room-only event, so if you plan to go, be sure to get there early this year. The concert is scheduled for 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 30,in the music/mass communication building and, as always, the show will be full of tricks and treats.

"The performers will be decked out in their best costumes, and the audience, young and old, is invited to do the same," says Allen Henderson, professor and chair of the music department.

The program includes "Fanfare for the Common Man," "Funeral March of a Marionette" (the Alfred Hitchcock theme), music from "Psycho" with guest violinist Douglas Droste, music from the movie "Casper," Led Zeppelin's "Black Dog," featuring guitarist Stanley Yates and Christopher Rouse's "Ogoun Badagriss."

Following tradition, David Steinquest's costume is top secret, known only by his wife and President Bush. "Congressional leaders have not been told, for fear of a leak to the media," Henderson adds. "You'll just have to come on the 30th to find out for yourself."

In addition to providing a treat for the audience, this year's concert will benefit the food pantry of Loaves and Fishes. All adults in attendance are asked to bring two non-perishable food items or pay $2 admission. Children also may bring items but will be admitted free.

Loaves and Fishes is a community service organization that provides hot meals and food to those in need in the Clarksville community. Staffed almost entirely by community volunteers, the activities are directed by a board of community members.

Loaves and Fishes relies on the support of local restaurants, grocery stores and the general public for contributions of money and food items to sustain its contribution to the Clarksville community.
