All treats, no tricks at the BPO on Sunday

 Get in the Halloween spirit this Sunday at Kleinhans Music Hall with the “Ghosts, Goblins and Ghouls!” event.
 Presented by the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra as part of its family series, the main event is an hour-long concert with conductor Matthew Kraemer. Children are invited to come dressed in costume and parade across the stage.
  Kraemer will play Halloween music, as well as songs from "Harry Potter," "Jaws" and "Raiders of the Lost Ark." Doors open at 1 p.m., with the concert beginning at 2:30 p.m. and lasting an hour with no intermission.
  “Pre-concert activities include an interactive theater event led by the Theatre of Youth in the Mary Seaton Room,” said Jennifer Smith, media and community relations manager for the BPO.
 Smith added that treats will be given out to the children after the performance as they trick-or-treat with BPO musicians and staff.
  Admission is $10 for children age 2 to age 17, $8 for students and $15 for adults 18 and older. Tickets can be purchased at or by calling 885-5000. By Kevin Freiheit and Melissa Kania
