Haunting harmonies and mysterious melodies turn Verizon Hall into a chilling chamber of fright and delight as The Philadelphia Orchestra performs your favorite spooktacular classics including Saint-Saëns's Danse macabre! Assistant Conductor Kensho Watanabe takes us on an eerie tour of the Mexican traditions of Día de los Muertos including music from the popular Disney/Pixar film Coco. We hope you'll wear your most-bewitching costume as we fill your musical goodie bag with plenty of treats.
Join us in Commonwealth Plaza beginning at 10:30 AM for an Instrument Safari presented by Settlement Music School where everyone gets a chance to explore the different sounds, colors, and instruments that make up an orchestra.
