Thanks to the Fort Wayne Philharmonic, Halloween has never sounded so good. The long-running classical music group presents three performances during Halloween weekend 2021. The first is less a concert in the traditional sense, and the second spotlights spooky and intense classical selections, and the third is a concert featuring youthful performers playing scary tunes.
Fort Wayne Philharmonic goes “Psycho”
Friday, October 29, the Fort Wayne Philharmonic pairs its talent with the Alfred Hitchcock classic, “Psycho.” The Phil will play the movie’s score live. Audiences will remember that “Psycho” stars Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh. The movie is based on the life and crimes of serial killer, Ed Gein.
The concert will take place at the Auer Performance Hall in the Rhinehart Music Center on the Purdue University, Fort Wayne. The event is scheduled to run from 7:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m.
The suspenseful mood of the movie will only be enhanced by the sound of the Fort Wayne Philharmonic. The experience should be one that engages audiences who have seen “Psycho” many times, and those who have not. Tickets are $25.

This year, the Fort Wayne area is fortunate to have a number of events that give citizens something to do.
