Phantoms of the Orchestra

THE STORY

Every Halloween the “phantoms of the orchestra” return to haunt the concert hall. The maestro and his terrified assistant must use the power of the baton to control this ghoulish orchestra of the undead and lead them in concert. The story of the Sorcerer’s Apprentice is brought vividly to life in this eye-catching Family or Pops concert program.
