Dark Magic and the Fantastic

Dark Magic and the Fantastic! with the Comet Concert Band, directed by Maestra Heather Barclay. Two powerful instrumental ensembles team up to present a wickedly delightful and family-friendly program of pre-Halloween pieces that will fire up the imagination. The Comet Concert Band will bring you under its spell with Danse Macabre by Saint-Saens, music from the Harry Potter movies and more! Then, the PSO will conjure up scary-good selections from Broadway to the ballet and opera. In a phantasmagorical finish, the two monstrous ensembles will combine for Mussorgsky’s epic “A Night on the Bald Mountain.”

Magical Journeys

With the power of melody and harmony to transport us to faraway places, the PSO presents a program that will take you far away, without leaving the Howard Brubeck Theatre! Voyage down the Moldau river with Smetana, explore Puerto Rico with Louis Gottschalk, reflect on our inner landscape with Weller’s Intervals of Peace, and accompany Grieg as he sends Peer Gynt into the wide world!

The PSO teams up with the Palomar Choirs directed by Dr. John K. Russell and local groups to present Carl Orff’s masterwork “Carmina Burana” and Ralph Vaughn Williams’ “Five Mystical Songs” in a concert that will reveal music’s power to explore life’s unknowable mysteries.
