You know what is often missing in front porch Halloween décor? Music. For years, I hooked up a speaker to our front window and piped out Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in d minor to the delight of our Trick or Treaters. It was the perfect finishing touch that brought all of the physical elements together.
If you are looking for spooky music, look no further than the classical genre. Here are some of our favorites:
Bach, Toccata and Fugue in D Minor
Chopin, Funeral March
Dukas, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice
Saint-Saëns, Danse Macabre
Grieg, In the Hall of the Mountain King
Gounod, Funeral March of a Marionette
Mussorgsky, Night on Bald Mountain
Maybe keep the light on while you listen?!
