Join Joseph Giunta and the Des Moines Symphony on a Halloween adventure with the Magic Circle Mime Company as they lead a concert just for families, with music from Dokas’ Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, and more.

Every Halloween the “phantoms of the orchestra” return to haunt the concert hall. The maestro and his terrified assistant must use the power of the baton to control this ghoulish orchestra of the undead and lead them in concert. The story of the Sorcerer’s Apprentice is brought vividly to life in this eye-catching Family Concert program.
