CHILLS & THRILLS!

It’s creepy, crawly and so much fun it’s spooky! Your little ghost or goblin will help haunt our new location, the AISD Performing Arts Center, for the Austin Symphony’s annual Halloween Children’s Concert. This exciting concert features frightfully fun symphonic music that is stimulating for young eyes and ears (ages 2–10). The entire family is invited to dress up in their favorite costume and enjoy “boo-tiful” music with their Austin Symphony Orchestra!

This season’s featured piece will be the always popular piece Peter and the Wolf, “a ‘symphonic fairy tale for children’, is a musical composition written by Sergei Prokofiev in 1936. The narrator tells a children’s story, while the orchestra illustrates it. It is Prokofiev’s most frequently performed work, and one of the most frequently performed works in the entire classical repertoire. It has been recorded many times.” -Wikipedia
