Composers from the romantic era were masters at illustrating feelings, pictures, and stories. Long before there were movies, these composers captured people's imaginations by painting vivid pictures in music. In celebration of Halloween, we will explore music from the romantic era which illustrates spooky stories and characters. Also, don't forget to check out our new group performance class and all of the great concerts happening in Melrose this month. Happy Listening!

Baba Yaga is a mythical creature from Russian folk tales who is kind of like a witch or a sorcerer. According to the legend, she can fly through the air.
