LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) --Ask any kid what they like the most about Halloween, and you're going to get two answers:The costumes, and sweets.
"I like getting the candy," Daniel Bronfman, dressed as Superman, explained.
This year the students at Gist Music Center are adding their talents to the mix, by playing the piano in costume.The piano shop is looking to bury the record for the biggest, spooky piano recital in the country dubbed "Halloweekend."
"We have a record number of attendees. We have 260 students in 9 hours of recital time," James Harding from Gist Music Center said.
That includes a couple of witches performing a duet, Darth Vader, and Superman.
"Well I was going to do Batman, but since the main part covers your face, I'm being Superman," Bronfman said.
They'll all play in what looks like a boiler room, complete with sketchy lighting, fog, and a scary movie-like story line.
"The members of the Gist Piano Center staff have been institutionalized to make sure that the students don't disappear," Harding explained.
The only thing that isn't meant to be scary are the talents of budding musicians, who aren't ready to grow all the way up just yet.
"It's a fun way for them to use their costume again, and have a spooky but not scary experience," Harding said.
You can check out the concert for yourself this Friday at 4:30pm, 6pm, and 7:30pm at the Poplar Level Road location. The recital continues in Lexington on Saturday. Admission is free.
