The Dayton Philharmonic kicks off the 2019–2020 DP&L Foundation Family Series by presenting its annual legendary PhilharMonster Halloween Concert, setting the spooky stage for Halloween and getting the mood just right for celebrating the autumn season.

Maestro Gittleman and the DPO have planned an afternoon full of fantastic musical selections to get us all in the Halloween spirit. The concert will end this year with a very special surprise, kept so much on the down-low that even we don’t know what Neal has up his sleeve!  Who knows?

As is the costume custom, everyone is encouraged to show up dressed in their Halloween finest. Even the orchestra members will be getting into the costume groove! There will be a costume parade before the performance, and during the show, the audience will have the chance to vote on the best musician costume! And what Halloween get-up our beloved conductor will choose this year is just as big of a secret as it is every year! Any guesses?

Activities for kids of all ages begin at 2 p.m. in the Wintergarden of the Schuster with crafts, treats, a scavenger hunt, a costume parade, and the popular instrument petting zoo. Join us for the Halloween bash of the season!
