HURON – The Firelands Symphony Orchestra (FSO) presents Silver Screen Sorcery: A Halloween Fantasy on Sunday, Oct. 29 at 4 p.m. at Sawmill Creek Convention Center. This family friendly concert will feature the full orchestra, under the direction of Carl Topilow, and a special visit from Count Dracula played by Eric Charnofsky.

A family celebration of all things spooky, audience and orchestra members both are encouraged to come dressed in their best family friendly Halloween costume for a special costume parade during the concert. Be transported through the fantastical movie universes of Star Wars, The Wizard of Oz, Harry Potter, Hook, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, and The Witches of Eastwick.

The concert will also feature eerie symphonic masterpieces like Saint-Saëns’ Danse Macabre, and Peck’s The Thrill of Orchestra.

“Maestro Topilow crafted the idea of having a family Halloween concert that could incorporate the beautiful music from films that all ages love. We are very excited to play these pieces live for people of all generations to enjoy in new and fun ways,” said executive director Ron Brooker.
