The Brookline Music School presents The Second Annual Winsor Music Halloween Concert, featuring Brookline Music School voice faculty, Megan Henderson on piano, Winsor Music Artistic Director, Peggy Pearson on oboe and Dalit Warshaw on theremin, playing classical pieces arranged for piano and theremin. The theremin, an early electronic musical instrument, has often been associated with an eerie sound, which has led to its use in movie soundtracks, as well as rock and avant-garde, 20th- and 21st-century concert music. Audience members will have the chance to participate in the Halloween Concert through playing the theremin and singing a Halloween tune or two. The Bakalar Recital Hall will be adorned in Halloween spectacle, as well as the players. Come in costume and join the party!
Brookline Music School will hold a Halloween Story Contest for ages 14 years and under. Winners of the Halloween Story Contest will have their story read and accompanied by theremin and piano at the Halloween Concert. Stories and poems can be any length. All entries are due by Monday, October 25. Entries can be sent to Megan Henderson at firstname.lastname@example.org or to Brookline Music School.
The Second Annual Winsor Music Halloween Concert will take place in Brookline Music School’s Bakalar Recital Hall, 25 Kennard Road, Brookline, MA 02445 on Saturday, October 30, 2010 from 7:00-8:00pm.
