Leave it to The Reformed Church of Bronxville to come up with a truly novel Halloween celebration.
At 5 p.m. on Oct. 31, the church will present a “Halloween Organ Spooktacular,” with Sándor Szabó, minister of music, at the keyboard and in costume. (Ah ha-ha-ha-ha-ha. Sorry. Just trying to provide sound effects.)
Let’s leave the soundtrack to Szabó, who’ll perform eerie organ classics in a darkened sanctuary. He’ll also explain how Halloween grew out of All Saints’ Day (Nov. 1) and why certain music makes our hair stand on end. Treats (not tricks) follow. WYC – wear your costume.
And keep in mind these other concerts:
Nov. 24, 3 p.m – The Chancel Choir performs masterworks by Bach and Mozart with chamber orchestra.
Dec. 8, 4.p.m.: The crystalline sounds of handbells ring in the Christmas season at the church’s annual “Advent Handbell Concert.”
Dec. 14, 4 p.m.: One of Westchester County’s biggest “Handel’s ‘Messiah’ Sings” takes place in the decked-out sanctuary. BYOS – bring your own score. (Music will also be available.)
