The Mansfield Symphony Orchestra will present its second concert of the 2017-2018 OhioHealth Symphony Series, “Scary Symphony” on Sunday, October 22 at 3 PM at the Renaissance Theatre in Mansfield, Ohio. Under the direction of Octavio Más-Arocas, the event will feature a program of classic and popular “spooky” music played by the orchestra. Guests are invited to attend the concert in costume.
The program includes both classical repertoire and film music, including John Williams’ “Double Trouble” from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Dukas’ The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Berlioz’ “March to the Scaffold” from Sinfonie Fantastique, selections from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera, among many others. A youth choral ensemble composed of students from the Renaissance Youth Opera Theatre and Mansfield Youth Theatre will perform on the concert.
Following the event, Metronome Music will provide an opportunity for guests to experiment with orchestral instruments at an “Instrument Petting Zoo” in the lobby of the Renaissance Theatre.
