October at the Phantom Recital Hall!

And now it's time to kick off October with a trip to that old concert hall for a night of good music. Tonight is a special tribute to Halloween, featuring Bernard Herrmann's "Concerto Macabre," originally composed for the movie HANGOVER SQUARE.

Herrmann was a magnificent composer, who gave us two immortal music cues...the themes from PSYCHO and THE TWILIGHT ZONE, but who composed many remarkable film scores. HANGOVER SQUARE is a wee bit obscure; not many people know of it, and it's not perfect as a movie, but this concerto, composed to be performed during the film's climax, is simply amazing.

Let's go have a cup of coffee after the show, shall we?
