It’s creepy, crawly and so much fun it’s spooky! Little ghosts and goblins will help haunt the concert’s new location, the AISD Performing Arts Center, for the Austin Symphony’s annual Halloween Children’s Concert. This exciting concert features frightfully fun symphonic music that is stimulating for young eyes and ears (ages two to 10). The entire family is invited to dress up in their favorite costume and enjoy “boo-tiful” music with their Austin Symphony Orchestra.
New this year, other than the venue, is an assigned seating option. This season’s featured piece will be the always popular piece “Peter and the Wolf.” A “symphonic fairy tale for children,” the piece is a musical composition written by Sergei Prokofiev in 1936. The narrator tells a children’s story, while the orchestra illustrates it. It is Prokofiev’s most frequently performed work, and one of the most frequently performed works in the entire classical repertoire. It has been recorded many times.
The concert will be held on Sunday, Oct. 29 and there are two different show times: 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. The AISD Performing Arts Center is located at 1500 Barbara Jordan Blvd. For tickets and more information, please visit austinsymphony.org.
