Festival City Symphony (FCS) will begin its “Pajama Jamboree” season with “Let’s Meet Mozart” — Halloween Pajama Jamboree, a free concert on Wed., Oct. 26, 2016, at 7:00 pm in the Bradley Pavilion of the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts.
Dressed in costume, the FCS orchestra will celebrate Halloween with a performance of musical “treats” featuring Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The program presents talented young local actor Chris Orth portraying the prolific composer. The evening will include such Mozart tunes as “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star,” “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik,” a solo violin piece, “Serenade for Winds,” and more.
Attendees are encouraged to wear costumes.
Unlike previous years, attendees should enter through the main entrance on 929 N. Water Street. If they park in the Marcus Center lot, they are welcome to use the third level skywalk.
As a graduate of Concordia University Wisconsin, Mr. Orth’s studies included performing in the musicals “Little Women,” “The Will Rogers’ Follies,” “Something’s Afoot,” and “Curtains.”
All “Pajama Jamboree” concerts have free admission. Hosted by Education Director Jayne Perkins, these popular programs welcome children and their parents or grandparents to attend in casual dress or pajamas. The audience is invited to bring a blanket and sit on the floor, up close to “meet” the orchestra. Conventional seating is also available. Pajama Jamborees are best suited for children in K4 through fifth grade.
