Halloween flute choir recital set for Saturday

The Williamsport Flute Choir, in conjunction with the IT Chamber Ensemble, will present its Halloween recital at 2 p.m. Saturday at Robert M. Sides Family Music Center.

The program for the recital is set to include spooky classics, traditional favorites and festive new music guaranteed to get the audience into the Halloween spirit.

The IT Chamber Ensemble clarinet quartet will open the recital with several selections, including Gounod’s Funeral March of a Marionette, better known as the theme to “Alfred Hitchcock Presents.” The recital will culminate with the Williamsport Flute Choir’s presentation of “Night on Bald Mountain,” by Modest Mussorgsky, which will be recognized by many as being featured in Disney’s “Fantasia.”

Admission to the recital is free; however, donations are gratefully accepted to help defray music purchase costs. A reception will follow the performance.

This will be the flute choir’s second public recital. They also will be presenting a holiday recital on Dec. 21. For further information on the ensemble, visit:, or email
