Are you bummed you cannot have a big Halloween party this year due to Covid-19? Well, the JSS is here to lift your spirits, as we plan to bring fun and spooky memories to you right in your home. Join us for a night of music performed by the great musicians of the orchestra, as well as the Illinois College Chamber Singers and Women's Choral! We will be having some iconic spooky classical music including the INFAMOUS Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, by the one and only Johann Sebastian Bach, played on the Rammelkamp Chapel Organ by Nichol DelGiorno. So, put your comfy clothes on, and snuggle up on the couch, and enjoy so fun and spooky music this Halloween! Click HERE for more details!
