Halloween concert with special family tickets takes over PARC gym

PLYMOUTH, Mich. - Michimich -- Celebrate Halloween a bit early this year as the Michigan Philharmonic brings back its beloved  "Phright Night" concert on Saturday, Oct. 22 in the PARC gymnasium.

Led by Conductor and Music Director Nan Washburn, now in her 24th season, the Philharmonic will offer a family-friendly evening featuring scary classics and a freaky long list of fun movie themes and highlights. Everyone is encouraged to wear costumes, and fans will want to watch for what new costume Washburn will unveil – a tradition she began many years ago at the Phil's first Halloween concert.

Beginning at 7 p.m., the performance will include Johann Sebastian Bach's "Toccata in D Minor, BWV 565," Johann Strauss II's "Overture to Die Fledermaus," and "Phantom Regiment" and "Pirate Dance" by Leroy Anderson.
