PSO: To The Unseen World

People love to ponder the “Unseen World” as Halloween approaches and no one knew this better than the composers who created amazing fantasy worlds with their music. The Parker Symphony Orchestra will bring “The Unseen World” to our audience with themes that take our audience from Rome, to a flying bat and even a demon witch. Join the Parker Symphony and guest composer Ryan Smith for a magical evening of sound that will put you in the mood for Halloween.

Suzanne Vega

Suzanne VegaOctober 25 – 7:30 PM

A masterful storyteller and one of the most brilliant songwriters of her generation, her early hits, including “Tom’s Diner” and “Luka,” made her an icon of the 1980s neo-folk revival. Vega sings in a distinctive, clear vibrato-less voice that has been described as “a cool, dry sandpaper- brushed near-whisper” and as “plaintive but disarmingly powerful.” This Lilith Fair regular shares her new songs and your old favorites.
