Cornell-themed Halloween haunting

It was a dark and stormy night…

Thunder cracked over campus. The lights at Sage Chapel flickered, glinting menacingly on the beautiful organ. A haunting Halloween tune sliced through the air, but only YOU can hear it.

Toccata and Fugue in D Minor and Prelude, Fugue, and Postlude in G minor.
Performed by Michael Plagerman MFA ’19.
