Goddard Chapel Halloween Midnight Organ Concert

Wednesday, October 31, 2018 @ 11:45 pm - 1:00 am


The Tufts University Chaplaincy presents a late-night recital of haunting music, played by Music Director Thomas B. Dawkins at the 1883 Hook & Hastings’ organ and Steinway piano of Goddard Chapel.

This night of Halloween has been recognized in many times and cultures as an in-between time. In the Western Christian tradition, this is the eve of All Hallows, All Saints’ Day — a holy day on November 1. Latin American cultures celebrate Dia de los Muertos, and Pagans have long celebrated the late harvest of Samhain.

This program will include such favorites as Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in d minor, BWV 565, Saint-Saëns’ Danse macabre, as well as music of Gounod, Monti, and Krzystof Komeda.

A reception with cider and doughnuts will follow in the common room. All are welcome.
