Halloween Organ Concert

October 28, 2021
Baylor University will present its thirty-first-annual Halloween Organ Concert on Sunday, October 31, beginning at 7:30 p.m. in Jones Concert Hall, located within the Glennis McCrary Music Building. The lighthearted program is directed by Baylor’s Associate Professor of Organ, Isabelle Demers, with students from her organ studio performing playful tunes from (mostly) movie musicals.
Opening the concert will be “The Indredits” by Michael Giacchino (Daniel McIntosh, organ) and “How Far I’ll Go” from Moana by Lin-Manuel Miranda (Vincent Pham, organ).
Next will come “Across the Stars” from Star Wars by John Williams (Holden Miller, organ) and then “Honor to Us All,” “Reflection,” and “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” from Mulan by Matthew Wilder (Catherine Ledoux, organ).
Also to be heard are a medley from Beauty and the Beast by Alan Menken (Laura Smith, organ) and “Raiders March” from Raiders of the Lost Ark by John Williams (Chase Douthit, organ).
Three selections from Hans Zimmer’s Pirates of the Caribbean will be played: “Main Theme,” “Blood Ritual/Moonlight Serenade,” and “The Medallion Calls” (Brady Zimmerman, organ), and they will be followed by three selections from Thomas Newman’s score to Wall-E: “2815 AD,” “Wall-E,” and “The Axiom” (Andy Brown, organ).
The program will close with “Under the Sea” from The Little Mermaid by Alan Menken (Vincent Pham, organ) and Charles Tournemire’s Improvisation sur le Te Deum (Joel Tiotuico, organ).
This Halloween Organ Concert is free of charge and open to the public. It is also available for livestreaming at baylor.edu/music/live. Those attending in person are invited to wear Halloween costumes, if they so desire.
