Get into the Halloween holiday "spirit" with a special spooky concert on October 25.
At the SCARE-illon, known as the Millennium Carillon the rest of the year, Naperville City Carillonneur Tim Sleep will play both classical and popular Halloween-themed music, including TV and movie themes from the Adams family, the Munsters, Casper the Friendly Ghost and others.
The concert also features the Élan Dance Company, premiering four original dances, including a musical theatre number, “Macavity, the Mystery Cat” from the Broadway Musical ‘Cats;’ a Hip-Hop/Jazz routine to the Michael Jackson hit, “Thriller,” a jazz dance to “Back to Black” by Beyoncé and a zombie inspired modern/contemporary routine to Marilyn Manson’s, “Sweet Dreams.”
In keeping with the Halloween theme, the Naperville Park District will be handing out treats to trick-or-treaters at the event. Élan Dance Company is a program of the Naperville Park District and is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
The Scare-illon concert, scheduled from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 26, will include a live video feed from the playing cabin to a large monitor on the plaza in front of the tower. As always, the concerts are free and open to the public. The Naperville Park District will provide Halloween treats for the audience. The Carillon is located at the base of Rotary Hill at 443 W. Aurora Ave.
