Ghouls, goblins and monsters will be in attendance at Abravanel Hall on Monday at 7 p.m. for Utah Symphony's Family Halloween Concert. Assistant conductor Kory Katseanes will direct the orchestra in a program he created to give the audience a fun-filled evening of otherworldly music.
Among the works to be performed will be selections from some of the great horror movies from past and present - "Mary Shelley's Frankenstein," "Ghostbusters," "The Creature from the Black Lagoon" and "Jurassic Park," to name only a few.Mussorgsky's "Night on Bald Mountain," though not associated with a particular monster, will round out the evening's demonic musical fare.
In addition to the concert, there will be treats for the children and a costume contest for both children and adults. Please note that those who wish to take part in the costume contest should register before 6:30 p.m. (Doors will open at 5 p.m.)
Prizes, courtesy of KSL, will be awarded to first, second and third place winners in the child and adult categories. Costumes will be nominated prior to the concert, with the winners chosen by the audience at intermission.
So, dress up in your favorite costume and come down to Abravanel Hall for an evening of fun and entertainment for the whole family.
