Spooktacular Sounds concert

Spend a night listening to frighteningly good music at the “Spooktacular Sounds in the Haunted Hall: A Halloween Concert.” The Alexandria NOVA Band will play a selection of music from various composers, including Hector Berlioz, Henry Fillmore, Michael Markowski, Giacomo Puccini, Camille Saint-Saens and Robert W. Smith.


The band includes both NOVA students and community members. Lisa C. Eckstein, a music instructor at NOVA-Alexandria, will direct the band. A movement piece will also be presented by NOVA students and directed by Kate Al-Shamma, assistant professor in the Communication Studies and Theatre Department at NOVA-Alexandria.


Attendees are encouraged to come in costume to receive special prizes. Everyone who attends will leave with trick-or-treat goodie bags.
