Join Music Director Steven Larsen and the Rockford Symphony Orchestra (RSO) for spine-tingling fun with “Reel” Chillers and Music that Goes Bump in the Night at the “Halloween Fright Night” opening performance of the Pops Series Saturday, Oct. 24, at the Coronado Performing Arts Center.
The RSO will perform theme music from popular “scary” movies such as Psycho, King Kong, Vertigo and Ghostbusters, plus more spooky tunes including Robert Wendel’s “Trick or Treat” and “Ride of the Headless Horseman,” Cy Coleman’s “Witchcraft,” and the late Michael Jackson’s wildly popular “Thriller.” The orchestra will be dressed in costume, and the audience is invited to wear costumes.

Club RSO is Rockford’s newest event for the people in their 20s, 30s and 40s. Hosted by the RSO, Club RSO offers a night of sophisticated fun at the Coronado Theatre. Club RSO’s first event is at the Oct. 24 Pops Concert. For just $25, this exclusive Club RSO special offer includes a concert ticket in the balcony and a Post-Concert Party on stage. Haunted backstage tours, plus other “treats” are sure to make for a fun evening.
