Western Washington University’s Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Ryan Dudenbostel, presents its annual Halloween benefit featuring music with eerie themes and frightening pop-culture references at 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 31, at the Performing Arts Center Concert Hall, on campus.
The program includes “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” popularized by Disney’s movie “Fantasia;” Camille Saint Saens’ “Danse Macabre;” and Dvorak’s tone poem “The Noon Witch,” based on the tale of a mother who threatens her child with the frightening specter of a witch if the child does not behave.
Tickets, $5, are available at tickets.wwu.edu, at Western’s box office, 360-650-6146, and the door. Proceeds benefit Western’s Music Library.
