It’s festive November at the SPO

November marks the kickoff of the Scarborough Philharmonic Orchestra’s 35th season of quality musical entertainment – with two concerts tailored to the season.

 

Our season premiere features Halloween music, packed with ghoulish and ghastly sounds, like Danse Macabre, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Funeral March for a Marionette, Prelude to a Thriller, Harry Potter music and more.

 

The SPO musicians will be dressed in costume and concert-goers are invited to dress up and join in the fun. There’s even be a costume parade and awards for the best outfits.

 

Trick or Treat – A Halloween Concert

Saturday, November 1 – 8 p.m.

Next in line for this month of musical celebrations are the traditional sounds of the holidays. Celebrate the season with Joyeuse Marche, L’Arlesienne Suite No. 2, Troika from Lieutenant Kije Suite, Fantasy on Hungarian Folk Melodies and more. Guest Conductor Howard Cable will lead the orchestra in favourite Christmas and Hanukkah music.
