Blood, guts and organs at CSU

Halloween is never complete without running in fear from the University Center for the Arts.
On Sunday at 7, 9 and 11 p.m. in the Organ Recital Hall Joel Bacon, organ students and special guests will perform the fifth annual Halloween Organ Extravaganza.

The event, which has become a community and campus tradition, will feature costumed performers playing music on CSU’s world renowned Casavant organ.

As in previous years Bach’s “Toccata and Fugue in D minor” will be performed. The Toccata and Fugue have appeared in many areas of pop culture, including: “The Phantom of the Opera,” “Fantasia” and “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.”

Tickets are $3 for CSU students, $3 for ages 2 to 7 and $5 for adults. Advance purchase is highly recommended to avoid at-the-door ticket fees.

Big voices and big laughs in the UCA tonight

Tonight at 7:30 p.m. in the Griffin Concert Hall the CSU Opera Theatre and University Opera Orchestra open Mozart’s “Le Nozze Di Figaro.”

Vocal and orchestral students will come together to play the famous Mozart opera.

With the opera buffa (opera comedy) style, the performance portrays comedic errors of love and trickery.

The opera, which is conducted by Wes Kenney, is presented in Italian with English super-titles. It takes place in 18th century Seville and is complete with traditional costumes and scenery.

The opera will also be performed on Sunday at 2 p.m., and Nov. 5 and Nov. 6 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 for CSU students, $1 for ages 2 to 7 and $20 for adults.
