Bring the family for this spooky concert of Halloween-y favourites. Give your costumes an early debut and join HPO musicians and staff as we dress up and compete for best costume. Enjoy this one-hour concert that includes fun and family-friendly music like excerpts from Star Wars and Haydn’s Suprise Symphony. In partnership with the Hamilton Film Festival, families will also enjoy brand new short films alongside Dukas’ The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Saint-Saëns’ Danse Macabre.

Arrive early to enjoy Halloween crafts and the “Instrument Petting Zoo,” hosted by An Instrument For Every Child (AIFEC). Children and parents alike can explore a variety of instruments in a hands-on way and try out a new musical instrument under the guidance of local musicians.
