What will you be for Halloween? Join the Orchestra as they put on musical costumes to tell magical stories. Let your imagination be your guide through a journey of orchestral disguises. Some characters are funny. Some are scary. The flutes turn into the flowing Moldau River, the violin dresses up as princess Sheherazade, and the whole Orchestra becomes little goblins! Come in costume--the musicians wear marvelous costumes, too--and let the musical quick-change artists of The Philadelphia Orchestra entertain you!
