The Northern Virginia Community College Alexandria Concert Band will celebrate Halloween with a “haunted” performance. The “Spooktacular Sounds in the Haunted Hall” will take place from 7:30-8:30 p.m. Oct. 29 at the Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Art Center at the Alexandria Campus.

The concert will be family-friendly so the NOVA Alexandria Band welcomes students, faculty, staff and community members to enjoy a safe and fun concert for Halloween.

Lisa Eckstein, music instructor and band director, encourages everyone to come out to hear the music of J.S. Bach, David Maslanka, Edvard Grieg and others. The music program for the concert will include Bach’s “Toccata and Fugue in D Minor,” “Incantation and Dance” by James Barnes Chance, “Hocus Pocus” by James Syler and more.

During the event, free parking will be available in the Beauregard Street parking garage next to the concert hall for the event. In the spirit of Halloween, there will be prizes for those who attend the event dressed in the best costumes
