Mad Music and Film with the Occasional Symphony on Halloween
Brace (or dress) yourself for horror, humor, and harmony with this upstart symphony at the spooky cool 2640 Space in Charles Village.
Time & Location

2640 Space, 2640 St Paul St, Baltimore, MD 21218, USA
About The Event
Up your classical music repertoire and your Halloween costume game as the Occasional Symphony, led by Ryan Tani, and joined by soprano, Kerry Holahan, plays a curated live score to the 1926 Japanese silent horror film, A Page of Madness.
As always, no plus-one required for the Mixolo experience, but you may want to find comfort in your new Mixolo connections as we witness this breakthrough film that "bowls you over with a barrage of startling images utilizing every technique known to filmmakers of the time" according to Midnight Eye. You can expect the usual suspects: asylums, evil doctors and mysterious disappearances.
Filmmaker Teinosuke Kinugasa’s avant-garde cinematographic techniques will be complemented with thoughtfully selected pieces, not only from the classics, but from exciting 21st century contemporary composers (Nicholas Bentz, Joshua Bornfield, Douglas Buchanan, Haley Olson and Alexa Rinn), including a few graduates from the distinguished Peabody Institute, and most with eclectic tastes and influences from the French Impressionists like Debussy to the Star Wars and X Files soundtracks. The cool kids…
Occasional Symphony is on a mission to share the majesty of symphonic music performances in less traditional and more accessible venues, “living spaces,” none more appropriate than the cool and spooky 2640 Space on St. Paul Street.
Join us on a journey into the avant garde. Feel free to come in your Halloween costume. You’ll be in good company. The performers, including the conductor, will be dressed to thrill as well as they combine horror, humor and harmony on Halloween night.
MORE ABOUT OCCASIONAL SYMPHONY:
Founded in 2012 in Baltimore, Maryland, Occasional Symphony is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and “grass roots” orchestra in Baltimore that presents innovative concert celebrations to engage the community and illuminate the experience of hearing live music curated for living spaces.
Occasional Symphony concerts happen in distinctive venues not often associated with orchestral music. Each program is designed to resonate with the specific venue and occasion. Baltimore Magazine named the 2016 Halloween show Baltimore’s Best Performance or Play for that year.
MORE ABOUT THE VENUE:
The 2640 Space on St. Paul operates as a collective and event space supporting the arts and grass roots organizations, as well the occasional wedding, in it’s stunning interior, a former Methodist church.
