A Yale Halloween
Every year, at the stroke of midnight on October 31st, Yale's Woolsey Hall is packed with students in costume, eagerly awaiting the start of the Yale Symphony Orchestra's annual, legendary Halloween Show. As is tradition, YSO screens a a short, silent movie filmed by YSO members, and sets it to live orchestral music.
This year, the movie's plot involved a Yalie spread too thin - with too many extracurricular and academic commitments, and no time for friends. Following certain dramatic events fit for a fantastical Halloween night, her transformation into a Yalie with a healthy workload had the hall cheering with empathy. And we couldn't help but think back to YHD 2015's motion: "All work and no play is the dictum of today."
Oh YSO--we think alike!
