30th Anniversary Concert
Spooky Music

Friday, October 27, 2017, 7:30 PM
Cary Arts Center - Theater
Cary, NC

It’s that time of year again when ghosts, goblins, demons, and other spooky things begin to appear in anticipation of Samhain and Halloween – in store windows, at front doors, and even at band concerts, where there’s definitely spooky and haunting music to be heard. How about a marionette’s funeral or a night up on the Bald Mountain or an original macabre dance ballet. In fact, to enhance the spookiness, we'll be joined by dancers from Graceful Expressions Dance Education in two different premier ballets - not to be missed! How about a world premier of a work by a young up and coming Cary composer derived from that music found on the posterior of a denizen of Hades in the Hieronymus Bosch surreal painting “The Garden of Earthly Delights”. If all this happens along with spooky silly prizes, that will be spooky, but only if you join with us for our 30th Anniversary Concert, an evening of Spooky Music.

Remember the Grand Entrance parade with Thunder and Blazes, the seal act with Walking Frog, the aerialists flying above to The Crimson Pedal, the big cats in The Big Cage, the Grand Finale with Barnum & Bailey's Favorite, and many more in the three rings in between. For kids of all ages, come one, come all and enjoy the grand spectacle as we answer the question, do you Remember the Circus?

Friday the 13th

Friday, April 13, 2016, 7:30 PM
Cary Arts Center - Theater
Cary, NC

Do you suffer from triskaidekaphobia (fear of the number 13) or worse, yet, paraskevidekatriaphobia (fear of Friday the 13th)? If so, THIS is the concert for you! We celebrate the number 13 and specifically this particular April Friday the 13th – and play music that absolutely demonstrates that such phobias may be well founded – or not. Who can resist Wooster’s Black Cat Rag or Missaud’s The Salem Witches (13 witches in a coven). We’ll include Cujus Animam from the Stabat Mater by Rossini (who died on a Friday the 13th), Wagner’s Good Friday Music (from Parsifal), and so much more – some quite lucky, with Silly Prizes, too. Challenge your phobias and join us as we luckily, musically investigate Friday the 13th.
