Andrew Grams leads the Grant Park Orchestra in an evening of musical thrills.
Get ready for a mid-summer family “spooktacular” when the Grant Park Orchestra performs a concert of chilling favorites including Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries, Saint-Saëns’ Danse Macabre, and Stookey’s The Composer is Dead—a zany orchestra mystery by author Lemony Snicket narrated by film and television star Damon Gupton.
