Scary Music

by Margie

As the weather gets cooler and the days get shorter, the store aisles and displays are loaded with candy, costumes, ghosts, jack-o-lanterns and other items associated with Halloween. 

Children in Westport are in for a special treat with the annual Halloween Parade on Main Street on Thursday, October 27 from 2:00- 4:00. 

If you are planning a party and want the perfect music to enhance the decorations and thrills at your haunted house, I offer these suggestions:

Bach, Johann Sebastian.  Toccata and Fugue D minor, BWV 565

Berlioz, HectorSymphonie Fantastique

Dukas, PaulThe Sorcerer’s Apprentice

Gounod, Charles.  Funeral march of a marionette

Liszt, Franz.  Mephisto Waltz

Wagner, Richard.  Overture to the Flying Dutchman
