Join Us for the 13th Annual Pipescreams Concert, Sunday, October 19th, 4:00 PM, United Congregational Church, Bridgeport
An entertaining concert of Halloween-themed, Broadway, and other recognizable musical pieces, including another 1920√¢‚Ç¨¬≤s short silent film accompanied by David Harris at the mighty pipe organ.
We are looking forward to another jam-packed Halloween Musical Extravaganza joining the forces of 5 very talented choral groups, exquisite local instrumentalists at the piano, organ, percussion, and you, along with us, in costume, to enjoy what has become an annual tradition for the Halloween season. (Never been to a Pipescreams concert? Check out last year’s videos, photos, program, media coverage here.)
Each choral group has become more theatric with their performance pieces adding a great dimension to the music chosen. 4-Heart Harmony, SHU L.O.V.E, University of Bridgeport Chamber Singers, and University Singers, Norma Pfriem Children’s Choir, continue to wow the audience. We include all of the annual favorites that the audience have grown to love — Dr. Joe Utterback (jazz ensemble, costume march), David Harris (inspired with fire, silent film, getting the audience involved), Dr. John Michniewicz (great Toccata in D minor), Galen Tate (solo organ), and we welcome back Dr. Aymeric Dupre la Tour and Frank Zilinyi that we put to work as they joined our performance team.
