This Halloween, ghouls of all ages are invited to celebrate the holiday where it started—in church.
On Thursday, October 31 at 5 p.m., The Reformed Church of Bronxville presents its first ever Halloween Organ Spooktacular, a concert of spooky organ classics performed by the church’s eerily talented Minister of Music, Dr. Sándor Szabó—in costume! A reception of treats (not tricks!) follows, and all are invited to attend wearing their costume of choice.
This 30-minute family concert will feature arresting organ works including Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, Boellman’s Suite Gothique, Grieg’s, Peer Gynt Suite and Night on Bald Mountain by Mussorgsky, all played on the church’s magnificent four-manual organ with over 4,000 pipes.
Dr. Sándor Szabó has a well-established reputation as “one of the leading organists” in New Jersey, his home until January 2013, and is “the busiest musician in New Jersey” (Classical New Jersey Society Journal). Dr. Szabó is actively engaged as conductor, harpsichordist, organist and pianist throughout Europe, Canada and the United States. He has performed in major concert halls and cathedrals throughout Europe and North America. Currently, Dr. Szabó is The Minister of Music/Organist at The Reformed Church of Bronxville, NY; Music Director/Organist at The Church of Point O’ Woods on Fire Island, NY, and Music Director/Conductor of The Oratorio Society of New Jersey.
