Electronic lighting effects and dramatic dance will heighten the atmosphere at this extraordinary concert. Splendidly evocative (and even a little spooky!) classics, filled with staccato chords and deep swelling tones, will emerge from the Brombaugh Opus 35 pipe organ at the skilled touch of the organist Christopher Holman. The musical selections will include: Toccata in d minor, J.S. Bach; Phantom of the Opera Overture - Andrew Lloyd Webber; and pieces by composers Widor among others.
Lighting artist Stephen Tankersley will add special effects to accentuate and bring to life the rich music. Choreographer Elizabeth Cheney of Springfield Dance has created interpretive movement with ethereal costuming to round out a magical experience of light, sound, and expressive dance to celebrate the triumph of good over evil.
We invite you to dress for the concert — all in black, all in white, in costume — in order to participate more fully in the sensations of this unique experience. The concert itself is free: we will gladly accept donations to benefit the Springfield Salvation Army.
