Goblins & Ghouls Concert poster

The Reno Pops Orchestra starts its 2017/2018 “Season of Adventure” with a family favorite night of goblins, ghouls, and other fantastical, musical tricks and treats. Children, and the young at heart, are invited to come in costume and be a part of the costume parade.
Join the otherworldly celebrations in Rimsky-Korsakov’s spectacular orchestration of Mussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain and Saint-Saëns’ playful, bone-rattling tone poem, Danse Macabre. Relive Frodo's epic journey through Middle Earth in the symphonic suite from The Lord of the Rings. Experience Danny Elfman’s darkly charming film score to Tim Burton's cult classic, The Nightmare Before Christmas. Rock out with the theme song to Ghostbusters. Snap along to The Addams Family.
The evening will also include two featured guest artists. Special guest and Reno native Clio Brady, winner of the Reno Pops Concerto Competition, returns to Reno for a performance of Walton’s Concerto for Viola and Orchestra, a piece that highlights the instrument’s deep, soulful sound and introspective nature. Aldo Perrelli, currently pursuing his Doctorate of Musical Arts at UNLV, joins the Pops in a haunting performance of Schubert’s world-famous art song, Erlkönig for tenor and orchestra.
Finally, in a special treat for our season opener, the Pops will perform a piece well-known in Russia, but never performed in the United States: Suite from the Ballet Shurale, a work by Russian-Tartar composer, Farïd Yarullin.
