Can You Survive the Shocking Sounds of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra’s “SYMPHONY OF TERROR”?

Saturday, October 22, 2022 | News


The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra has a musical Halloween treat in store for horror fans on October 25. A collaboration between San Francisco drag artist and filmmaker Peaches Christ (director of the cult hit All About Evil) and internationally-acclaimed conductor Edwin Outwater, SYMPHONY OF TERROR, which will take place at Vancouver’s historic (and haunted) Orpheum Theatre, will be a night of classic horror movie music guaranteed to send shivers down your spine. 

Peaches Christ and conductor Edwin Outwater invite you to a night of musical mayhem.

Along with selections from the scores of such films as Psycho and Friday the 13th, favorite tunes from The Rocky Horror Picture Show and darkly delirious classical pieces from Mussorgsky, Stravinsky and others, VSO’s SYMPHONY OF HORRORS will feature a slew of spooky guests to help bring the music to life, including Toddy (Vancouver-based drag king and the Season 1 winner of Call Me Mother on OUTTV) and drag queen Batty B Banks (Vancouver’s premier Brazilian Jamaican). As a bonus, legendary film composer Henry Manfredini will be on hand to join the VSO as they play his scores from A Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th

VSO brings you this fab-BOO-lous night of thrills, chills and diversity in partnership with Rainbow Refugee.

Tickets are on sale now at or by phone at 604-876-3434.
