Last night we attended a Halloween Spook-tacular at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Akron. The Akron Chapter of American Guild of Organists presented a wonderful program. Highlights included selections from "The Seasonings" by P.D.Q. Bach. Nancy Ulrich, who was one of Marie's early voice teachers, performed the alto part. Hearing "In the Hall of the Mountain King" on the organ of a huge church was a treat. A gnome seated in the audience proceeded to the front of the church and played "Gnomus" from Pictures at an Exhibition. Marie sang twice. She performed "For Good" from Wicked and also sang a a duet, "All I Ask of You", from the Phantom of the Opera. This was a delightful way to celebrate Halloween.
