“This one is all about the villains,” David Steinquest, APSU professor of music, said. “Pretty much everything has to do with bad guys.”

The Tuesday night concert will open with music from the “Halloween” movies, and then move into works such as Bach’s “Goldberg Variation No. 25,” which was used in the “Silence of the Lambs,” and “The Imperial March” from “Star Wars.” Later, another famed villain will make his way to the stage, with APSU music professor Jeffrey Williams singing the lead role from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “The Phantom of the Opera.”

The evening’s eclectic program will also feature Igor Stravinsky’s “Triumphal March of the Devil,” German composer Engelbert Humperdinck’s “Evening Prayer” from his opera “Hansel and Gretel,” and the theme song from the popular 1966 television show, “Mission Impossible.”

Admission to the Halloween concert is two cans of food, which will be donated to Loaves and Fishes, or $5.00. The event usually sells out. For tickets, drop off the cans of food at the music office, Room 139 of the Music/Mass Communication Building, or purchase them online at APSU Marketplace.
