‘Halloween’ Coming to Potomac Point Winery

STAFFORD COUNTY, Va. – The Chamber Chorale of Fredericksburg is gearing up for a ghoulish good time at Potomac Point Winery in Stafford. On Saturday, October 27 and Sunday, October 28, the winery and chorale group will partner to present a “Halloween on Broadway” concert.
Artistic Director at Stafford County’s Riverside Dinner Theater and Broadway veteran Patrick A’Hearn will be featured in the show.
President of the Chamber Chorale of Fredericksburg Patti Kerns said Halloween on Broadway will be the group’s first performance in Potomac Point Winery’s ballroom. The event is geared toward a mostly adult crowd, although children are welcome.
In planning their first pre-Halloween performance, Kerns says the Chamber Chorale recognized how few opportunities there are for adults to enjoy the ghostly holiday in a mature setting.
The evening will begin with a buffet dinner at 6:30 p.m. and concert at 7:30 p.m., or guests can attend on Sunday afternoon, for a 3 pm performance and dinner to follow.
Founded in 1988 as a small ensemble, The Chamber Chorale of Fredericksburg is known for performing high-quality choral music in a wide variety of styles. Music selections for the Halloween on Broadway concert include pieces from Harry Potter, The Addams Family, Little Shop of Horrors, Sweeney Todd, Les Miserables, Wicked and Phantom of the Opera.
Kerns said featuring A’Hearn is something that the group has been eager to do for some time, and that this concert was the first occasion to do so.
“This concert is a wonderful opportunity for the Chorale and the community to hear Patrick A’Hearn so soon after his acclaimed performance as the title role in Phantom [of the Opera] at the Riverside Dinner Theater. Audiences will certainly enjoy the spooky selections and the beautiful atmosphere at Potomac Point – we know it will be a memorable performance for everyone,” said Chamber Chorale Director Mary Hannah Klontz.
Guests are invited to wear Halloween costumes, if they dare. Prizes, including wines from Potomac Point, will be awarded.
The $30 ticket price includes a buffet meal and the concert. Wine and desserts will be available for an additional fee.
Advance tickets are required and are available at Potomac Point Winery, Fredericksburg Visitors Center, and on-line at ccfbg.org. For more information call 540-898-0458.
