Outside of “Beethoven & Blue Jeans,” your typical evening at the symphony calls for dressing it up a bit. But this performance really calls for stepping up your apparel: For the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra‘s “Halloween Spooktacular,” concertgoers are encouraged to wear their terrifying, funny, or terrifyingly funny costumes to the show.

The orchestra itself will be decked out in Halloween finery, and the program will include some spooky sonic treats, including Roy Parker Jr.’s “Ghostbusters” theme; Danny Elfman’s “Edward Scissorhands: Main Title”; John Williams’ “Jaws: Main Title” and “Jaws: First Victim”; the theme from TV’s “The X-Files”; Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries”; Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”; Elfman’s “Music from Spider Man” and more.
