Fall is in the air. Leaves are falling from the trees and everybody is drinking their pumpkin spice lattes. This is also the time of the year for the annual orchestra fall concert. The Chamber, Symphony, Philharmonic and Concert Orchestra will perform Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the auditorium.

This year is different from the years before.

“We have kind of a Halloween theme going on and we will be playing more difficult music this year,” orchestra teacher Joshua Taylor said.

The pieces they will be playing are called Danse Macabre, Allegretto Grazioso, Water Knight and Today.

Junior Caroline Pagano, a first violin in Chamber Orchestra, is very excited for the concert in which she gets a solo.

“(Preparations are) going really well,” Pagano said. “It should be a really great concert.”

Tickets for the concert are free. However, there is a food drive going on between orchestra, choir and theater. Donations are greatly appreciated and orchestra hopes to beat its competition.

Most importantly, Taylor wants to give attendees a great show.

“I want them to know we are here and that it’s very difficult,” Taylor said. “I hope to give them a new experience with music.”
