The Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra opens the 2012-13 season with the return of its spook-tacular Halloween-themed concert on Sunday, Oct. 28 at 2 p.m. at the Stafford Centre. Hauntcert is a family-friendly, magical event that includes a costume contest for all ages. The concert is sponsored by Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital.

Hauntcert features popular music like Lion King, The Devil Went Down to Georgia and Thriller, as well as “ghostly” classics like Night on Bald Mountain, Firebird and Funeral March of a Marionette, which is also known as the Alfred Hitchcock theme. Concert-goers of all ages are sure to be spellbound by the magic of the Invisible Conductor and delighted by the costumed orchestra.

Children, as well as adults, are invited to dress in their best Halloween attire for this special concert. During intermission a costume contest will be held with prizes awarded for creativity in these four categories: Ages 6 and under, ages 7 to 12, ages 13 and up, and group/family.

“The debut of this concert was a huge hit in 2010,” said Music Director Dr. Héctor Agüero. “It’s a fun time as FBSO musicians dress up in costume and we perform ghoulishly great music and mix in some magic.”

Tickets to Hauntcert begin at just $12 for adults, while children 12 and under attend free, when accompanied by an adult. Discounts are available for students, seniors 55 and over, military and groups of 10 or more. Tickets are available at or by calling 281.276.9642.

The Stafford Centre is located at 10505 Cash Road at Murphy Rd in Stafford.
