Opera Fright Night

Just when you think all the creepy Halloween festivities are over, think again!

Shorter University’s music department is extending Halloween this year. Come out to Evan’s Chorale Room to experience an opera with an eerie twist.

On Nov. 1 at 5:30 p.m., the Shorter music department will be presenting Opera Fright Night.

Katelyn Johnson, who is an active part of the show, said she believes the opera is “a really good opportunity for the students of Shorter to come out and experience the art program.”

Dr. Deborah Popham, assistant professor of music, opera director and coordinator of vocal studies, proudly expressed her appreciation for all the hard work her students put into the show.

“It’s really fun to watch the students grow in their music and performance abilities from when we put the show all together,” said Popham.

To take the festive theme up a notch, there will be a costume contest starting at 5 p.m. before the show.

Free snacks and drinks will be provided to enjoy while you watch the spine-chilling show!
