Halloween Madness and Music at Yale
Murder and mayhem are on the program when the Yale Symphony Orchestra takes to the Woolsey Hall stage at midnight on Thursday, October 31, wrapping up Halloween with a dramatic musical flourish. The orchestra, in costume, will provide musical accompaniment for an original murder mystery, written, acted and filmed by Yale undergraduates – with cameo performances by senior University administrators.
The musical program includes excerpts from Berlioz’s “Symphonie Fantastique” and works by Tchaikovsky and Prokofiev, as well as musical surprises and jokes. Guest conductors are Yale students Jason Weinberger and Joshua Richman.
Many members of the audience will be in costume, too. This event promises to be a lively, highly visual story.
