THE CONCERTS!
Brought to you by the CROWN HILL HERITAGE FOUNDATION, our “MUSIC OF THE NIGHT” Concerts are something you won’t want to miss! Held in Crown Hill’s beautiful and historic Gothic Chapel (1875), these concerts feature professional organist Charles Manning as “The Phantom,” along with awesome “Phantom Vocalists,” Eric Wickens and Leah Crane. They will perform music from the famous “Phantom of the Opera,” as well as many familiar TV & movie themes that are sure to please. Mr. Manning and the “Phantom Vocalists” will fill the evening with their wonderful musical gifts as well as humor and drama, followed by ghoulish refreshments!

And if that’s not enough wonderful entertainment for the evening, also included in the ticket price is our ever-popular “Skeletons in the Closet, Part I” guided walking tour (description below) conducted by one of Crown Hill’s expert tour guides, Tom Davis. On this tour we’ll visit many graves and learn the secrets that some had thought they’d carried to their grave. (Please note that this is not a creepy tour about ghosts, just interesting facts.) The tour will last about an hour and will progress at a comfortable pace. (Walking up the steep hill to the top of Crown Hill is optional.) Please note that the “Skeletons in the Closet” walking tour is included with the concert ticket and that “tour only” tickets will not be sold.

WHEN:
October 19, 20, 21
October 26, 27, 28
The six concerts will be held on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights of the last two weekends of October. Each evening they will be held in the historic Gothic Chapel at 8:00 pm. Following the concerts awesome refreshments will be served – Long’s donuts & hot apple cider, as well as bottled water and apples! The guided walking tour will begin after refreshments at approximately 9:20 pm and will last about an hour. The tour will depart outside in front of the chapel. Flashlights are recommended, along with good walking shoes. Please dress warmly; our tour takes us to the top of the Crown in the dark and it’s often chilly and windy in late fall.

“SKELETONS IN THE CLOSET, PART I” Description
Was it one of his three wives, or another long-time lover, that Skiles Test kept in a glass coffin in his House of Blue Lights along Fall Creek? Why does one headstone say simply “Mother of Rosalind” and not her full name, which would have been Helen Orr Hufnall Phaff English Wegmann English English Prince Prince? He followed in the footsteps of both his father and grandfather to become bank president, building himself a 40,000 square foot mansion on the east side of town, but by the time Stoughton Fletcher died, he’d lost the house, survived his wife’s suicide, a runaway daughter’s mysterious death, and was working as a hotel elevator operator in Los Angeles when his son committed suicide as well. On this tour we’ll discuss their lives and the lives of others who show us that money does not necessarily bring happiness. Note: this is not a creepy tour about ghosts, but a historical tour about of some of the people buried at Crown Hill.
