The CSU organ studio and CSU Professor of Organ and Liturgical Studies Dr. Joel Bacon perform classic (and not-so-classic) works – including the famous Toccata and Fugue in D minor of Bach. Thought to have been Bach’s warm-up for testing organs, the piece has transcended classical realms to become a major part of pop culture and has become the unofficial theme song of Halloween.
Performed on the world-renowned Casavant organ, spooky sounds are sure to put you in the Halloween spirit. Come in costume, if you like, and be prepared to have ghoulish fun at this family-friendly event.
“Every year I ask myself — can it get more fun than this?” said Bacon.
The University Center for the Arts at Colorado State University provides an enriched venue in which the study and practice of Art, Dance, Music, and Theatre are nurtured and sustained by building the skills and knowledge needed by future generations of arts professionals to become contributors to the essential vitality of our culture and society.
