Halloween Concert

Saturday, October 29, 2016, at 6 pm

Lake Travis Performing Arts Center

The ACO's Halloween concert is a family friendly affair with a special pre-concert instrument petting zoo that begins before the concert at 5 pm. We'll also have goody bags for those under 12 and free admission for those under 18. Costumes are welcome!

For the concert, Music Director Dr. Lois Ferrari has programmed a creepy and spooky evening. ACO will be performing Mussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain and music from the Harry Potter films. Guest pianist Michelle Schumann will perform Franz Liszt’s Totentanz (Dance of the Dead).

Thanks to the Family of Dorothy and Joseph Bohn for sponsoring this concert.
