On Saturday, October 18, 2014 at 7:00pm the El Segundo Concert Band (ESCB) will present “Monster Music.” This Halloween themed concert will feature great “monster” movie scores and other family-scary music. Halloween is always an exciting time of the year for kids, so why shouldn’t it be for kids-at-heart as well. The ESCB created this annual event for that very reason: to bring children and adults together for a night of fun. Included in the evening’s festivities will be a costume contest, so don’t be afraid to dress up.
Highlights of the performance will include The Nightmare Before Christmas, Godzilla Eats Las Vegas, “Love Remembered” and The Mummy, which will be performed to scenes from the film. Godzilla Eats Las Vegas is a jaunty and comical musical take on the Godzilla movie concept composed and created by Eric Whitacre, known for his innovative virtual choirs. “Love Remembered” is the hopeless love theme from Bram Stoker’s Dracula, composed by Wojciech Kilar and arranged by ESCB’s very own Conductor, Steven Allen Fox.
Night on Bald Mountain, Danse Infernale and The Witch and the Saint.
