There’s no better place to celebrate Halloween than with the Symphony. From tolling bells to ghostly woodwinds, screeching strings to belching brass, the symphony orchestra was made to give you thrills. 
The Winston-Salem Symphony and Winston-Salem Festival Ballet celebrate this Halloween with music sure to offer treats, and maybe a few tricks.

Peter and the Wolf

The Winston-Salem Symphony and Festival Ballet tell Prokofiev’s timeless tale about a brave boy, his grandpa, and their quirky animal companions. Each character is represented by a different instrument and melody, from the bird’s flourishing flute to the grandpa’s grumpy bassoon, creating a classic that listeners of all ages will remember for the rest of their lives.

The Symphony celebrates the premiere of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens with a concert of music from throughout the saga, written by one of America’s most celebrated living composers, John Williams. The music from Star Wars is some of the most beloved in the history of film music, including the “Main Theme,” the “Imperial March,” and the “Duel of the Fates.”
