(Posted 10/5/20) ALL, 36th Annual Halloween Concert on Friday, Oct. 30 at 7:30 p.m., Livestream on Facebook!
It's October! Frank N. Stein, Mr. Ghost, and Ms. Pumpkin are not real, but do not be dismayed! The real APSU Percussion Ensemble will be putting on the 36th Annual Halloween Concert on Friday, Oct. 30, 7:30 p.m., and the plan is for it to be live! The Covid-19 wrinkle is that it will be live-streamed on the APSU Music Department Facebook Page. There will be only one show and there is no admission fee! I'd still like to support Loaves & Fishes (and honestly, they probably need help more than ever!), so if you want to contribute, go to their website, loavesandfishestn.org or swing by the Music/Mass Communications Building and drop your donation into the Percussion Ensemble Halloween Concert Garbage Can located just outside the front door of the building (Be careful with it! That's a real musical instrument!).
This year's concert features music from the Row-Loff Productions Concert Library (published by Chris Brooks and Chris Crockarell), and yes, they will appear on the concert to provide their disruptive moments of mayhem! There are classical transcriptions including Richard Strauss' Thus Sprach Zarathustra (music from 2001: A Space Odyssey), Gounod's Funeral March for a Marionette (the Alfred Hitchcock Theme), Kodaly's Viennese Musical Clock, Bartok's Allegro barbaro, and Prokofiev's March from The Love for Three Oranges. There are two "all-drum" pieces, Tridecagon and Witch Doctor, and I will go on record stating that the usually disparaged and maligned garbage can will have its moment in the spotlight on All About Dat Trash!
The stage will still be festively decorated! The ensemble will still be clad in spooky costumes! My costume will still be top secret! So, although we must be socially distanced, please still "come" to the APSU Percussion Ensemble Halloween Concert. I assure you a good time will still be had by all!
