The program for the joint concert features the best of spooky Halloween music. Both ensembles will perform selections separately, then combine for a rousing joint final. The Presbyterian College concert band will play Symphony of Souls by Robert Smith, October by Eric Whitacre and The Witch and the Saint by Steven Reineke. The Universitys symphonic band will perform three pieces from Ghost Train by Eric Whitacre, including The Ride, At the Station and The Motive Revolution. In the joint final, the bands will play selections from The Phantom of the Opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber and House of Horrors, a medley of scary music arranged by Tom Wallace. The medley is based on the music of Bach, Gounod, Mussorgsky and Chopin.

Coastal Carolina Universitys Symphonic Band is directed by James Tully, associate professor of music and founding director of the Universitys band program. The 65-member symphonic band has played two world premieres and performed with some of the finest wind band conductors and soloists. The symphonic band has been a mainstay of the concert band program at the University since its inception in fall of 2001.
