To help engage young people in the beauty and cultural value of orchestral music, the Redwood Symphony is set to hold a Halloween Family Concert this weekend.
Lasting two hours, the event will feature a tour of the Orchestra as well as a concert performance. The show will play a mix of genres, including a Sousa march and more.
“We will be doing excerpts from Mason Bates’ B-Sides, including the use of electronica to simulate a space walk and a disco,” said Maestro Eric Kujawsky.
Beginning at 3 p.m. on Sunday, October 27, attendees are encouraged to come in their Halloween costumes to add to the fun, family friendly atmosphere.
Tickets are $15 for children and $30 per adult in advance, rising to $35 per adult at the door.
Rounding out the event is a raffle drawing, with winners able to help conduct the orchestra for a part of the performance.
Canada College’s Main Theater, 4200 Farm Hill Blvd. in Redwood City, will host the event. On-site parking is free.
