(Daily Utah Chronicle) Costume black, the staple uniform for the distinguished Utah Symphony’s orchestra performers, will be switched for a single night as they don Halloween personas in celebration of this month’s holiday. The upcoming “Halloween Spooktacular on the Seven Seas” on Oct. 25 will be performed by the costume clad orchestra and director Rei Hotoda and the community are joining in.
“This is a huge event,” said Hotoda. “Everyone comes dressed in costume. It is amazing to see the things people come up with.” (…) Sponsors Salt Lake Comic Con and KSL have a slew of prizes they are prepared to award to the costume contest winners. The list of prizes includes Salt Lake Comic Con FanX 2017 passes, Living Planet Aquarium passes, a Clark Planetarium family pass and other prizes from The Leonardo, Natural family-friendly attractions more. The costume contest will take place before the show in the main lobby of Abravanel Hall from 5:30-6:30.
“This is a great show for those who have maybe never been to a symphony concert before. It is music that is relatable and fun and it all ties back to Halloween,” said Hotoda.
