With the Louisville Zoo's World's Largest Halloween Party, school parties, trunk or treats, and various other Halloween-related festivities around Louisville, your child will get more wear out of his or her costume this year than you ever did of your flame retardant boxed Ace Frehley outfit from the late ‘70s. Another place for your kids to wear their costume is the Louisville Palace on Saturday October 23 when the Louisville Orchestra presents its annual orKIDStra Halloween Spooktacular concert.
Part of the YUM! Family Series, orKIDStra allows families to explore classical music together with family-themed programming. Spooktacular begins at 11:00 A.M., and discovery activities sponsored by Family Allergy & Asthma begin at 10 A.M.
Conductor Jason Weinberger leads the orchestra through some not so scary orchestral favorites. The orchestra will be joined on stage by the University of Louisville Dance Academy and the Louisville Ballet Youth Ensemble ... and your child, if they so desire, as the kids march across the stage in a convoy cavalcade of costumes.
Spooktacular is the first of three themed Saturday morning concerts in the series. You can subscribe to the series for $41. Each concert will include pre-show activities. Spooktacular is a general admission show, and it should run about 45 minutes without an intermission.
Tickets are $15. For more ticket and series information, see the Louisville Orchestra's website.
