Spellbound, the second annual FCS Halloween pops concert includes music that ranges from GhostbustersThe Nightmare Before ChristmasPhantom of the OperaThe Witches of Eastwick, and the Monster Mash to the classical favorites of Mussorgsky’s Night on 

Bald Mountain, Saint-Saëns’ Danse Macabre, Dukas’ The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, J. S. Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor (think scary organ music), and more! The FCS is joined by ghost storyteller Shane Sheridan  and vocalists Patty Goble, Nicole Asel, and John Lindsey.

About the Fort Collins Symphony:

The Fort Collins Symphony has been an integral part of Northern Colorado’s cultural fabric since 1923 when visionary violinist Editha Todd Leonard established the Fort Collins Community Orchestra. In 1950, conductor Will Schwartz revitalized the ensemble and  transformed it into the fully-professional Fort Collins Symphony that we know today. The FCS is led by Maestro Wes Kenney, now beginning his 21st season as the orchestra’s Music Director and Conductor.

The Fort Collins Symphony Season is dedicated in memory of John E. Roberts. FCS Season sponsors are Arts Without End, City of Fort Collins Fort Fund, Colorado Creative Industries, National Endowment for the Arts, Dr. Ed Siegel, and Dr. Peter Springberg. 

Spellbound Halloween sponsors are Fort Collins Ghost Tours, Juszak Realty, Mary and Paul Kopco, and Paul Wood Florist.
