When accomplished musician, choir director and organist Jim Boratko, I mean, the Phantom of the First Church Crypt, sits at the classic 1950 Austin pipe organ, the haunting music fills the room and can send a chill down your spine!

With the only light in the room from the flickering candelabra, the mood is certainly set for a spooky night. The acoustics are amazing and the musical selections will provide the Halloween sprit, so to speak.

Celebrate Halloween with all of your favorite organ favorites of the season. “The Phantom” will be joined by his merry band of players presenting selections from Little Shop of Horrors. The evening will end with The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.

A suggested donation of $10 will be taken at the door. Free parking is available behind the church (enter the parking lot from Farmington Avenue). Visit whfirstchurch.org for more information.
