The Melbourne Community Orchestra will perform in concert in costume today when they present “Trick or Treat on MCO Street.”

The program features an original story written by Jana Doss and narrated by George Darfus with music for things that go bump in the night.

The audience can expect such tunes as Dead Man’s Chest from “Pirates of the Caribbean,” Funeral March of a Marionette, The Empire Strikes Back medley, Procession to the Stake and more spine tingling pieces.

Some 34 children from the Palm Bay Academy Charter School chorus will sing Lady Gaga’s Poker Face and selections from the Wizard of Oz. The students also have acting roles in Doss’ original story.

The free concert will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, October 27 at the Scott Center for the Performing Arts at Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy in north Melbourne, located off the Pineda Causeway at 5625 Holy Trinity Drive.

An assortment of activities for the children after the Saturday performance will include an instrument “petting zoo,” indoor trick or treating, pumpkin bowling, face painting, various craft activities and a Halloween photo booth.

Audience members of all ages are encouraged to attend dressed in costume.

Melbourne Community Orchestra vice president, Jana Doss, knows this concert will be a hit with kids of all ages.

“This pair of concerts is really special,” said Doss.  “We love performing with –and for– these young music lovers.  It will be a tossup to see whether it’s the kids or the musicians who enjoy this the most.”
