You gotta hand it to One World Symphony. Where other classical music outfits are content to do the same old thing, One World’s evil genius maestro, Sung Jin Hong (pictured), has crafted a shrewdly sinister Halloween program at the St. Ann and the Holy Trinity church.
What better place to spend All Hallow’s Eve than a gorgeous Gothic church — plus, it’s a benefit, too!
The Oct. 31 program includes Berlioz’s “Symphonie Fantastique”; Danny Elfman’s creepy-crawly score from “Batman”; Bach’s “Toccata and Fugue in D Minor,” featuring St. Ann’s towering, truly terrifying Skinner organ (and which easily could have been titled “Music to Dig Graves By”); and Mussorgsky’s “Night on Bald Mountain” — the original dark and primal orchestration, not the watered-down Rimsky-Korsakov version!
Now, I may have been an Ozzy Osbourne fan in my younger, more lysergic days — but this One World program is a real black sabbath.
One World Symphony’s Halloween Benefit. St. Ann’s Church (157 Montague St., at Clinton Street in Brooklyn Heights), Oct. 31, 8 pm. Tickets $20 ($15 with full costume); $15 Students ($10 with full costume); kids under 12 are free (with costume). Visit www.oneworldsymphony.org for info.
