Baylor's Halloween Organ Concert

October 23, 2014
Baylor University’s twenty-fourth-annual Halloween Organ Concert will be presented on Monday, October 27, beginning at 7:30 p.m. in Jones Concert Hall, located within the Glennis McCrary Music Building. This program is under the direction of the university’s Assistant Professor of Organ, Isabelle Demers. Baylor organ students will perform this evening of fun, along with Dr. Demers herself. Also taking part this year will be the twelve-member Baylor Trombone Choir, three percussionists, and Baylor’s fourteen-voice jazz group VirtuOSO.
Included in the concert will be Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Toccata and Fugue in D minor” (played by Hayden Coie and Isabelle Demers), Edvard Grieg’s “In the Hall of the Mountain King” from Peer Gynt (Adam Cogliano and Karen Sultan), “Prélude” from Gabriel Pierné’s Three Pieces, Op. 29 (Eric Bowser), the theme from Star Wars by John Williams (Baylor Trombone Choir and Amjad Dabi), “Adeste Fidelis in an Organ Prelude” by Charles Ives (Michael Groff), “Boléro de Concert” by James-Alfred Lefébure-Wély (Stephen Morris), Léon Boëllmann’s “Toccata” from Suite Gothique (Mitchell Won), “Pro Defuctis” by Camille Saint-Saëns (Kellie Richardson), and the “Épilogue” from Hommage à Frescobaldi by Jean Langlais (Chohee Kim).
VirtuOSO will present three “monster” hits from the American pop charts: Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” Imogen Heap’s “Aha,” and “Howl” by Florence and the Machine.
The Halloween Organ Concert is free and open to the public. Those attending are invited to come in costume, if they so desire. For more information, call the Baylor University School of Music at 254-710-3991.
