Diabolus In Musica

  • Canvas 3119 Via Dolce, Unit 306 Marina Del Rey, CA 90292 USA (map)

Come celebrate All Hallow’s Eve and the haunting music that makes our skin crawl. 

Violinist Jessica King and pianist Lynn Hutchinson will play some spooky classics by Saint-Saëns, Bach, Bernard Herrmann and John Williams, plus a few Canvas surprises.

And if all that weren’t terrifying enough, Canvas founder Lynn Hutchinson explain the basics of why certain music gives listeners the creeps

and introduce you to a musical element that was at one point banned by the Roman Catholic Church on account of it being diabolus in musica (“the devil in music”). 

Don’t let the font fool you - This show is appropriate for ages five to eternity. Program will be 70 minutes long with no intermissions. There is easy access to a bathroom.

Dust off that Frankenstein mask
