A Music Room Halloween!


Will goblins, ghosts and witches be ringing your doorbell this Halloween? It's likely that Halloween may come and go without any cute Darth Vaders or Elsas asking for candy. So why not make every day this week a dress up day? CPR Classical has the music for a week long Halloween celebration!

Karla Walker presents Halloween-themed classical music October 26-30 every day at 10:30 a.m. You can also hear CPR Classical at 88.1 FM in Denver, at radio signals around Colorado, or ask your smart speaker to “Play CPR Classical.”

Each day, the Music Room will present a different Halloween theme. To make things easy, we've put all the pieces together in a YouTube playlist. Here's what you'll hear:
