Samantha Middendorf, Entertainment Editor

Once a year, the Eastern Symphony Orchestra chooses to get in the Halloween spirit and present their Fright Night concert.

Fright Night will take place at 6 p.m. Sunday in the Dvorak Concert Hall in the Doudna Fine Arts Center.

The symphony, conducted by Richard Rossi and graduate conductor Alex Normansell, will perform a variety of Halloween themed songs for Eastern students, faculty and the Charleston community to enjoy.

The Halloween themed songs being performed include “Peter and the Wolf, Opus 67” by Sergei Prokofieff, “Green Eggs and Ham” by Rob Kapilow and “The Lost World” by John Williams.

The Charleston Middle School and Jefferson Elementary School choruses will also be joining the orchestra for a rendition of “Carol Ann’s Theme” from the film “Poltergeist.”

There will be a costume contest for children who attend the concert with awards for those with the best costumes. Children are invited to come onstage to show off their costumes for judging and to receive candy.

Tickets for the Fright Night concert are $12 for the general audience, $10 for seniors and $5 for students. Tickets can be purchased at the Doudna Box Office.
