Symphony gets spooky

Skeletons, witches and magicians will be making an appearance in the repertoire for the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra’s first ever Spooktacular show Oct. 28 and 29.
The orchestra, joined on stage by the OSO Chorus, will feature scary music from the classical repertoire as well as the soundtracks of movies such as Dracula, Psycho and Harry Potter.  Audiences are invited to join the fun by coming in costume.
Rimsky Korsakov’s Night on Bald Mountain is best known from Disney’s adaptation in Fantasia, and Camille Saint-Saëns’ Danse Macabre has been the music of choice over the past century for plays, movies, video games and TV, including Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  
The evening will close with the world premiere of The Raven by Gary Fry.  Set to the text of The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe, this piece is a mix of chorus, orchestra and narration that was composed for and dedicated to Rosemary Thomson and the OSO especially for this weekend.

The narrator for the evening is Christopher Gaze, artistic director of Bard on the Beach in Vancouver. He will bring life to classic scary readings from Shakespeare to Frankenstein.
The Spooktacular is showing in Kelowna, Oct. 28 at 7:30 p.m. and in Vernon Oct. 29 at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at www.okanagansymphony.com.
