DID YOU HEAR THAT?! Menomonie Art Music Society to Bring Spooky Sounds in Concert
for a spine-tingling show, don't miss out on this Oct. 28 performance
While classical music has persisted through the course of history with its elegant traditional sound, it can also err on the eerie side, with deep, booming sounds or string-led music that can quickly turn creepy! That's exactly what the Menomonie Art Music Society will be serving its audience at its October show.
Exploring a Halloween theme, the upcoming show is slated for Oct. 28 at 2pm, at Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Menomonie. The performance will feature examples from Sergei Rachmaninoff's Isle of the Dead and Hector Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique in which a section called Dance of the Witches Song is featured. Both The Erlking and Death and the Maiden by Franz Schubert are Halloween-worthy classical vocal music, which will be featured too. Art song, especially in the Romantic period (19th century), can be spine-tingling, a recent media release noted.
Performers include string students of Dean Langby, Dr. Aaron Durst, Mark Wacek, UW-Stout students, Andrew Maki, Juliana Schmidt, and students of local music teachers.
The show is free and open to the public, though donations will be gratefully accepted to defray costs. The Menomonie Art Music Society performs and promotes classic music while educating audiences on the genre. Local music students and experienced musicians perform for its programs.
