University of the Ozarks will present a pair Halloween events for the local community during the last week of October.
On Monday, Oct. 26, at 7 p.m., Walton Professor of Music Dr. Sharon Gorman and the University Chamber Singers will present the 15th annual All Hallows Eve Concert at the First Presbyterian Church in Clarksville. On Tuesday, Oct. 27, the Residential Hall Association (RHA) will sponsor its annual Haunted Housing event for children ages 12 and under in the community, starting at 6 p.m.
Along with the traditional Toccata in D minor of J. S. Bach, the All Hallows Eve Concert will include musical tricks and treats both scary and comical, including solos and duets from The Phantom of the Opera and music from Harry Potter and Stars Wars. There will also be several season-appropriate sarcastic love songs, including Paul Sjolund’s Love Lost and Mark Burrows’ We May Not Be Vampires (But We’re Still Men), and a rocking performance of Monster Mash.
The concert is free and open to the public. The program is child-friendly and audience members are invited and encouraged to come in costume.
The Haunted Housing event will be held from 6-8 p.m. on the 27th and will include trick-or-treat tours of several of the university’s residence halls and academic buildings as well as games. Children are encouraged to wear their costumes and parents can accompany their children on the tours.
The escorted tours of the Halloween-decorated halls will begin in the Rogers Conference Center on the second floor of the Seay Student Center. The candy that will be passed out by students will be purchased by U of O officials. There is no cost to participate in the Haunted Housing. For more information on the event, please call the Student Life Office at 979-1322.
