Come dressed in your Halloween finest and listen to spooky favorites during the Halloween SpookfestOct. 16-17. Selections from Star Wars, ET, Harry Potter, Frankenstein, and others are performed by the Arkansas Symphony. Creepy classics by Bach and Mussorgsky are also on the list.

Selections include “Toccata” and “Fugue in D Minor” by Bach; “The Murderer from Psycho:A Suite for Strings” by Herrmann; “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone Suite,” music from “Star Wars,” and the theme from “E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial,” all by Williams, plus the theme from “Batman” by Hefti. Others works are Lloyd Webber’s “Phantom of the Opera: Music of the Night;” Mizzy’s theme from “The Addams Family;” and Elfman’s “Music from Spider-Man.” Rounding out the program are Mussorgsky’s “Night on Bald Mountain,” “Danse Macabre” by Saint-Saens, and “Peer Gynt: Suite No. 1, In the Hall of the Mountain King” by Grieg.
