APSU’s 25th annual Halloween Concert continues entertaining


Austin Peay State University LogoTraditionally, the adjectives “creepy” and “scary” aren’t used to describe a musical performance, but on this occasion, Austin Peay State University music professor David Steinquest thinks they’re apt.

He used these macabre terms recently to describe the University’s annual Percussion Ensemble Halloween Concert. For the last 25 years, this strange blend of music and mayhem has set the mood for the October holiday, and it’s proven to be wildly popular among Clarksville residents.

“It’s a very family-friendly concert, and it’s always a sell-out,” Steinquest said.

At 6 and 8 p.m. this Friday, APSU musicians will once again don costumes and perform a mix of Halloween music in an eerily decorated concert hall inside the Music/Mass Communication Building.
