Springfield Symphony Orchestra performs “Symphonie Fantastique”

Hampden County

The Springfield Symphony Orchestra performed something spooky Saturday night, just in time for Halloween.

The Orchestra held their second classical concert of their 75th Anniversary Season at Symphony Hall in downtown Springfield. 

The symphony performed music from “Symphonie Fantastique”. The music describes the artist’s obsession, dreams, and visions of suicide and murder.

Kristen Lipkens, the education director for the orchestra told 22News, “We have people coming from all over the area. From Springfield, from the surrounding towns, and you just have a special feeling when you come to the hall. It’s a lot of fun.”

The Springfield Symphony Orchestra has been part of the cultural landscape of the Pioneer Valley since 1944 and performs a series of classical and popular music concerts at Springfield Symphony Hall.
