Lions & Elephants & Swans…

OH MY! Free Halloween Concert for the Kids.
October 27, – 3:00pm Teton Village, WY at Walk Festival Hall

This is my favorite time of the year. The leaves have changed colors. The wind is howling. All manner of superstitious creatures are making their way out of the shadows. Halloween season is here!

Jackson Hole Community Band 2017 Halloween Concert

To celebrate, the Community Band is performing it’s annual Halloween Concert for the Kids at Walk Festival Hall. Children, adults, and musicians will be dressing up as their favorite characters and listening to the haunting sounds of winds and percussion. We’ll be playing such classic Halloween tunes such as Danse Macabre, Bach’s Toccata and Fugue and music from the movies Dark Shadows and Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Special Appearance by Dancers Workshop Student Performers
This year will also feature a collaboration with Dancers Workshop. Our performance of Saint-Saens’ Carnival of the Animals will have Lions, Elephants, and Swans dancing alongside the band. I would like to thank school director, Eric Midgley, for organizing and rehearsing the dancers for this event.

It wouldn’t be a Halloween concert without our Addams Family sing-a-long. Audience members will be singing the classic tune at the end of the show with a guest singer to lead them. We’ll also invite costumed kids to march their way along the stage to the militant sounds of Gustav Holst’s Mars from his most famous work The Planets. After the show, children will have the opportunity to seek local Teton Village businesses for some trick-or-treat candy.

This year’s Halloween concert is shaping up to be the most challenging and fun that I have ever conducted. I can’t wait to see the ghouls and goblins make their way to the show and have a haunting time!

Boo!

Halloween Concert for the Kids

Don’t miss our 8th annual Halloween Concert for the Kids

The Jackson Hole Community Band, in partnership with the Grand Teton Music Festival, invite kids of all ages to arrive in costume to our 8th annual Halloween Concert. Conducted by Zachary Singer the JHCB will include favorites Harry Potter, In the Hall of the Mountain King, Phantom of the Opera, and The Haunted Carousel featuring the sounds of a theremin, played with an iPad app by Laura  Wanek, giving it a ghostly sound.

The theremin, the musical mainstay of sci-fi movies, is the only musical instrument you play without touching. The theremin was one of the very first electronic instruments. It was invented in Russia around 1919 by Lev Termen. During his time in the United States he was called Leon Theremin and the instrument took on his name.

Children will be invited on stage for a costume parade, bring your cameras! The concert is FREE and open to the public. Please join us for this fun Halloween event! Trick or Treating to follow at local businesses.
