Using combinations of two harps, percussion, narration, live-visual effects and more, this riveting program features original arrangements and transcriptions, including J.S. Bach's "Toccata and Fugue in D Minor", Saint-Saens' "Danse Macabre" and world premiere medleys from the movies of Tim Burton. Wear your costumes and prepare your most ghoulish musical appetite!
