ACO’s 40th Season Opener: Contempo-Scary Music

October 28, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

American Composers Orchestra opens its 40th Anniversary Season during the Halloween weekend with Contempo-Scary Music, a concert led by ACO Music Director George Manahan featuring music inspired by all things sinister and suspenseful. Contempo-Scary Music includes the world premiere of Paul Moravec’s The Overlook Hotel Suite, drawn from The Shining, his Stephen King-based opera with librettist Mark Campbell which thrilled sold-out audiences at Minnesota Opera last spring; the world premiere of Judith Shatin’s Black Moon, which introduces conductor-controlled electronics; Bernard Herrmann’s Psycho Suite; and David Del Tredici’s Dracula, a “gloriously giddy melodrama” (New York Times) starring soprano Nancy Allen Lundy.

$43 – $51.
