The DPO kicks off the 2015–2016 Family Series by presenting its legendary PhilharMonster Halloween Concert, setting the spooky stage for Halloween! The PhilharMonster program celebrates the change of seasons by extending the celebration of Halloween and reveling in the wonders of autumn.
Music Director Neal Gittleman will continue his tradition of onstage Halloween hilarity when he shows up as…sorry, we can’t say. It’s a surprise. Neal will lead a costumed Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra through a program that includes metric tonnes of lovely music. And the fun continues when the Orchestra’s musicians stage their own costume contest.
Activities for kids of all ages begin at 2 p.m. in the Wintergarden of the Schuster Center. Enjoy crafts, an instrument petting zoo, and the DPO’s annual costume contest. Prizes will be awarded for cutest, scariest, and most creative costumes in age categories of 3 to 5, 6 to 9, and 10 and up. The costume contest is a great opportunity to let your kids test-drive their Halloween costumes early!
