Danny Elfman in Concert

October 29th - 8pm

 

Daniel Meyer conductor

Erie Philharmonic Chorus

Dr. Gabrielle Dietrich director

 

We’ll celebrate Halloween with the best of the best as we present an evening of music by popular film composer Danny Elfman. His name is synonymous with the films of Tim Burton, and what better way to enjoy the delights of the holiday than with music from these magical films? From Batman to Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow to Beetlejuice, and, most memorably, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Danny Elfman has penned delightfully dark and ghoulish scores. The Philharmonic will also perform some classic Halloween music to add to the festivities.

Costumes encouraged for this musical fright night!
