Program Notes

Welcome to Halloween is a musical theatre piece that consists of five pieces of music and a script that guarantees an exciting performance with your advanced student, or training band. The script for Welcome to Halloween was written by Fiona van Heemstra and Nynke Doets, and the music was composed by Thomas Geerts. The story begins a short introduction about what Halloween is. Eventually the script can be filled in with local events, places and facts that can makes the public feel it was really written for the band.

At the end of the theatre piece, everything is all right again with Catharine’s Song, a song that ensures that all the exciting things that have occurred during the concert have come to a happy end.

But be warned. With an over enthusiastic conductor the evening can descend in chaos, and the band members can enter the spirit world….

All music pieces have been orchestrated in eight parts with at least four percussionists as well. To perform, you require not only a band but also a narrator, an actor and a singer (male or female), a conductor, and band members who, aside from playing music also, have an affinity with drama.
