    Hitchcock and the symphony — who wouldn’t die to go! I would be particularly thrilled to take my 12-year-old son, who has seen every Hitchcock film available by Netflix, except Psycho. He’s been hounding me for a year, I just wasn’t sure if he was ready. But what a Supermom I’d be if I could surprise him with this fabulous trifecta — Hitchcock, Halloween and Harmonic progression!

    That’s my pitch. :)

  2. Jessi Lixx October 25, 2010 at 2:06 pm #

    I love Hitchcock, Thrillers AND Symphonies. Plus, I’m participating in ‘Sober October’ and ‘Remember November’ what else will I be able to do?

  3. Joey October 25, 2010 at 2:10 pm #

    I would enjoy this performance, so please chose me. Thanks

  4. Ernie October 25, 2010 at 2:12 pm #

    Sounds like a fun time.

  5. Christopher Bayerle October 25, 2010 at 2:14 pm #

    I was hoping to attend this event anyway with some friends. Hitchcock is one of my favorites, especially Psycho, and it’s always great to be able to see the symphony. It would be the perfect Halloween, my favorite holiday and my sister’s birthday.

  6. Z October 25, 2010 at 2:14 pm #

    This would be an awesome way to celebrate Halloween! I’d love to take my girlfriend!

  7. Neil Perry October 25, 2010 at 2:20 pm #

    This is going to be fantastic!

    My fingers are firmly crossed.

    • Neil Perry October 25, 2010 at 2:24 pm #

      Seriously, the suspense is killing me :-)

  8. RG Coleman October 25, 2010 at 2:23 pm #

    I went to a symphony Halloween event about ten years ago and my date and I were the ONLY ones in costume; I haven’t been stared at as much before or since. By now Portland has learned to have more fun, I think. Let’s try again!

  9. Daniel October 25, 2010 at 2:35 pm #

    I’d like to attend because I’ve never seen Psycho and I love the symphony. This would be an awesome treat!

  10. Hope October 25, 2010 at 2:50 pm #

    This would be an amazing way to spend Halloween evening! My husband and I have watched most of Hithcock’s movies and his “Presents” episodes, and we also love the Oregon Symphony. Pick me, please!

  11. Michele Heile October 25, 2010 at 3:05 pm #

    What an amazing opportunity to go to Hitchcock’s Psycho with the Oregon Symphony. The music is outstanding and so suspenseful. I can’t think of a better way to create an eerie Halloween evening. One to remember, for sure. Cheers.

  12. Berenice October 25, 2010 at 4:02 pm #

    I’ve had my eye on this event since I saw an ad before watching “Troll 2” @ the Rooftop cinema series this summer. I was crushed to learn that it’s more than my wallet can squeeze out now. In the spirit of Halloween please turn this trick into a treat and no toilet paper will be employed. Thanks!

  13. AJ October 25, 2010 at 4:22 pm #

    Nothing better than quality festive music – if it is anything can beat symphony at christmas – it’s symphony at halloween!

  14. shelley October 25, 2010 at 4:40 pm #

    I used to scare my roommate with this music all the time! It would be great to go and watch such an awesome film with live music with her! :) Thanks

  15. Howard October 25, 2010 at 4:43 pm #

    Would love to see this. Look like a lot of fun!

  16. Phil October 25, 2010 at 6:17 pm #

    This would be something awesome for my wife and I to do on Halloween, since we’re new to the area and haven’t really had a chance to go out yet. I’m a fan of Hitchcock’s work, so this would be cool to see. We had to watch Psycho and The Birds in my Intro to Cinema class in college. That sure was a difficult task. Plus, with a live orchestra playing the score, I’ll feel even more goofy when it gets to the part that Busta Rhymes sampled in “Gimme Some More”.

  17. cindyv October 25, 2010 at 9:18 pm #

    What a better birthday present to a Halloween baby than symphony tickets! I love music and was born on Oct 31st — perfect way to celebrate another spooky year!

  18. Shelley Benton October 26, 2010 at 10:29 am #

    Spending my years on all old Alfred’s movies = $19,807.
    Singing w/the Ore. Symphony as a Rose Princess = $50,000.

    Explaining “Psycho” to my “slightly” younger man = Priceless

    For Reals….? Please let this native of “cougar town” – I mean – stump town WIN!! WOOHOO (D’oh)

  19. Mcbeerguy October 26, 2010 at 2:20 pm #

    I love Hitchcock, and snooty people so this sounds perfect.

  20. Circlekaye October 26, 2010 at 2:42 pm #

    I’m a starving student who goes to school full-time and works part-time. I don’t have a lot of free time or money! This would be the perfect occasion for me to get out!
    Alfred Hitchcock is one of my favorite directors/story tellers. This is a great opportunity to see Psycho on the big screen AND hear a live orchestra while viewing it.

    Thank you!

  21. Joe K October 26, 2010 at 9:44 pm #

    What an amazingly fun idea! I would love to go to something like this.

  22. Hannah rosenau October 27, 2010 at 8:24 am #

    Sounds amazing, way to class up Halloween!

  23. Sarah H. October 27, 2010 at 9:19 am #

    Who wouldn’t love to see a great Hitchcock film with a live symphonic soundtrack!? Also, I am poor. I never go out because I am forced to be fiscally responsible. And I hate it.

  24. Dawn October 27, 2010 at 9:54 am #

    I grew up on this classic film, perhaps why I always lock the door when I shower and have a penchant for bloodied walls… I can’t imagine this would be anything short of absolutely fantastic. It’s either this or resign myself to pass out questionable things to young trick or treaters!

  25. Renee Harper October 27, 2010 at 10:49 am #

    I try to win things on here quite a bit but I really really want a great date night for me and my guy. We could really use it. Plus we are both serious movie buff and have somehow very oddly NEVER seen this movie!! Weird, but with the symphony..I can imagine how wonderful.

  26. Ashley October 27, 2010 at 11:18 am #

    This sounds like a great time! I would love to go. I love the symphony!

  27. Erika Darnofall October 27, 2010 at 12:33 pm #

    I studied Gothic Literature and film in college. My partner Dave studied music. He has never seen a Hitchcock film. I would love to be able to show Psycho to him in style so he will watch more black and white movies with me. He is getting better with subtitles. It is only fair that I learn more about the symphony. What a great opportunity for the both of us.

  28. Benjamin October 27, 2010 at 2:29 pm #

    What a cool idea. It’d be even cooler to see Birds live and have the hall release a bunch of crows and ravens. Ha ha.

  29. Chris October 27, 2010 at 4:07 pm #

    This sounds absolutely awesome. Hitchcock and the Oregon Symphony, what a great idea. I would love to win the tickets.

  30. Molly October 27, 2010 at 4:09 pm #

    I’m a Hitchcock fan and am blown away by the scores in his movies – it would be awesome to hear the songs played by a symphony! Thank you!

  31. Nick October 27, 2010 at 4:11 pm #

    Because I am not cool enough to make actual plans on Halloween, so a suspense filled evening would be perfect!

  32. Rebecca October 27, 2010 at 4:11 pm #

    This sounds amazing… I would love to go!

  33. Smelly October 27, 2010 at 4:13 pm #

    I am repeatedly slashing my shower curtain while wearing my mother’s garments and won’t stop until I hear i have won……..i won’t stop…..she won’t stop…..she can’t……..

  34. kitty October 27, 2010 at 4:17 pm #

    i’d love this!

  35. Amanda October 27, 2010 at 4:30 pm #

    it would be lovely. :)

  36. Allison October 27, 2010 at 4:53 pm #

    A previous film major, and classical pianist this fits me to a T! Although being an unemployed grad student doesn’t allow for much extra cash on hand. I would love the opportunity to go and take my boyfriend who is also an unemployed college student, and who studies classical piano.

  37. Nicole October 27, 2010 at 4:53 pm #

    The idea of it sounds cool! It’s different than the usual Halloween activities ive seen!

  38. Darcy B October 27, 2010 at 4:58 pm #

    Yes please, the last two years I’ve spent Halloween sitting by my door waiting for trick-or-treatrs that never come.

  39. morgan October 27, 2010 at 5:35 pm #

    My guy does not share my love of old movies but totally loves the symphony (as do I). I would absolutely love to go, it would be an amazing experience and it might even change his mind about the master of suspense! I cannot think of a better Halloween activity!

  40. Bianca McCarthy October 27, 2010 at 5:36 pm #

    My girlfriend and I missed our usual Hitchcock marathon this year so this would be the perfect way to make up for it!

  41. James Blair October 27, 2010 at 5:47 pm #

    Hi, I don[t have a lot of money, and I have a very wonderful friend (Victoria) who really enjoys orchestral music, and also really likes Halloween. It would be so great to be able to bring her to this event. Thank you very much. I really appreciate your help in giving Victoria a memorable evening.

    Tremendously Sincerely,

    James David Blair

  42. Elle October 27, 2010 at 6:32 pm #

    I’m a huge fan of Hitchcock and this would be so awesome for me!!! :*-) YAY!!! THank you!

  43. Linda Doriss October 27, 2010 at 7:03 pm #

    Am almost 60 years old and have never been to the symphony. Halloween and Hitchcock are my favorite experience. Give an old gal a break, thanks.

  44. Viola M Rose October 27, 2010 at 7:21 pm #

    I wasn’t going to do ANYTHING for halloween, but THIS, I would do!!

  45. tony cibik October 27, 2010 at 7:22 pm #

    this is the only thing that would get me to the symphony!!

  46. Suzanne October 27, 2010 at 7:32 pm #

    Wow!!! My favorite Hitchcock movie of all time! When did they put the symphony with it. I would rather go watch the movie than be stuck at home. So I pray to the halloween spirits and say TRICK OR TREAT!!!!! Thank you for hearing my plea.

  47. patty winter October 27, 2010 at 9:27 pm #

    I’m a big Hitchcock fan and supporter of the symphony. I would love to go to this with my man and my 19 year old who is underage and too young for most great Halloween events. Please oh please. Free tickets?

  48. Peggy Ryan October 27, 2010 at 9:51 pm #

    When Psycho first came out, I was 10 years old and my mama would not allow me to see it. My mama and I were huge Hitchock fans, but she said no, until I was 16. She actually went with me to see this film when I was 16! We were also huge fans of Hitchcock’s televison series. I can only imagine how wonderful it would be to see the film accompanied by the Oregon symphony. Music, especially in Hitchock films just enchances the suspense, fear and shock. It would be a night to remember. I would be so honored to attend this event. Even if I’m not picked, I want to say this is a great event.

  49. Taylor Moe October 27, 2010 at 10:14 pm #

    Every Halloween, my family makes sure to watch one movie: Psycho. Why? Because it is a great classic that never gets old- it creeps us out every time. I guess you could say that it is like a ritual for us.
    Watching this performance on Halloween would be incredible for me and my brother. We always celebrate Halloween together, and this would be tiiiiiiight.

  50. Linda October 27, 2010 at 10:37 pm #

    I am young, but I like to pretend to be a 60’s lady. Friend said ” Can’t believe it, you look like Hitchcock indeed”.

  51. Amy October 27, 2010 at 11:43 pm #

    So here’s the lowdown: I’ve lived in Portland for 2.5 years now, and have yet to see a single show at the Schnitz. The lobby looks cool from the window. Stupid economy. Either way, I implore you to consider granting me these tickets. I will dress up and use good manners. Promise.

  52. Smelly October 27, 2010 at 11:51 pm #

    I am still slashing and slashing…i mean she’s slashing and slashing, no, I am slashing and slashing., she’s making me…wait its her!…….please settle the confusion and give me, her, no , us the tickets!!!!!!!

  53. YS October 27, 2010 at 11:51 pm #

    This year, Halloween events have been making me want to run and hide, but THIS makes me want to go go go! We’re celebrating my husband’s birthday and this would make for a delightful surprise!

  54. Joe Wirtheim October 28, 2010 at 12:46 am #

    What a great honor it would be to not only see a great movie, but also enjoy such a very special orchestra performance. As an artist myself, I can rarely afford to attend the symphony, but this show is one I would very much appreciate to see and hear. Few people have heard a live orchestration of Psycho– a film whose tension is largely delivered through its atmospheric, full orchestra score. If I were to go I would imagine the day in 1960 when Hitchcock and original score composer Bernard Herrmann conducted the live recording orchestra while the latest film edit played behind them. They would have felt the film’s chill for the first time. What an outstanding credit to the Oregon Symphony and conductor Gregory Vajda for choosing an impressively difficult live orchestration of such a high impact film, one where making each cue is important– timing is everything in a thriller. But the effect on the audience will be a chilly feeling as skilled musicians bring to life a terror that has rarely been heard. The audio’s texture, deepth, and live-ness may make some head for the exit. I’ll do my best to stay in my seat. Still, I know many people hope to attend this show (and they should!), it’s just that I think I’ll appreciate it just a little more than most. But really, I just wish it didn’t have to be such a rare occurrence. Perhaps we can convince the Oregon Symphony to give us a couple more performances?

  55. Stacy October 28, 2010 at 6:49 am #

    I love the symphony and I love Halloween! Put to two together and it makes me want to explode with excitement and happiness. I’d love to be able to go

  56. Liz October 28, 2010 at 8:17 am #

    This sounds awesome! I would love to go.

  57. Anna Petruolo October 28, 2010 at 9:16 am #

    This is one of my favorite movie of all time. To see it with the symphony would be a dream come true. Plus, it’s Halloween and that would be an amazing date!

  58. Beki October 28, 2010 at 9:50 am #

    Cause I wasn’t able to shower alone in the house for a couple decades after watching Psycho!!! and I love the symphony

  59. Lizabeth October 28, 2010 at 11:31 am #

    Psycho AND the Symphony? I think Mr. Hitchcock himself would be delighted to attend. It would absolutely make my night if I could go.

  60. Amber October 28, 2010 at 11:35 am #

    My friend and I are students and can’t really afford it so would love to win tickets!!!

  61. John Prince October 28, 2010 at 12:18 pm #

    Hitchcock said “A good film is when the price of the dinner, the theatre admission and the babysitter were worth it.” Winning free tickets would be the ultimate tribute to his words!!

  62. Tona October 28, 2010 at 12:37 pm #

    My mother-in-law said, “No! I tell you no! I won’t have you bringing some young girl in for supper! By candlelight, I suppose, in the cheap, erotic fashion of young men with cheap, erotic minds! ”
    So I guess my husband will have to take me to the symphony instead!

  63. Tanya Herrera October 28, 2010 at 12:53 pm #

    Have never been to the symphony here in town and what better time to go then Halloween! Would love to treat someone who is jobless as my guest too, a night on the town would cheer him up :)

  64. Hava October 28, 2010 at 4:49 pm #

    I am new to Portland and just started graduate studies here. I would love to go to this performance, not only because it will help me get a better start as an appreciator of the arts in a new city, but because I’ve been a fan of Herrmann (and this score in particular) for ages!

    Fingers crossed!

  65. Pete October 28, 2010 at 9:37 pm #

    would love to go, sounds like a perfect Halloween event!

  66. valerie hoyt October 28, 2010 at 10:24 pm #

    “symphony” for two please….so I can take my ‘Psycho’ boyfriend!! ha ha

  67. jordan October 28, 2010 at 10:38 pm #

    I havent had a break in over a year so seriously i need a good excuse to take some time off (not to much) and this would be perfect!

  68. Sandy October 28, 2010 at 10:53 pm #

    I’m usually too broke to go out and I just love the Oregon Symphony. I haven’t heard them play live since I played in the Salem Youth Symphony back in 1984! Yep, that’s right. I moved away for some time and have recently moved back and need to get back to my roots of this lovely weird town!!!

  69. Shely October 29, 2010 at 12:15 am #

    This Halloween, I want to be scared while feeling sophisticated.

  70. Tinman October 29, 2010 at 7:06 am #

    My name is Bates (like the hotel) and I have never had the chance to see this film but been teased since childhood about it, plus my hubby and I would like to celebrate our anniversary this month in costume at this show!!

  71. Josh October 29, 2010 at 9:27 am #

    Handing out candy is great for the kids, but I’m interested in some grown up fun at the symphony! Help me and my fiance escape the house on Sunday!

  72. Stacey October 29, 2010 at 9:41 am #

    Watched Hitchcock’s ‘The Rope’ on the first date with my now-husband. He’s a huge fan of Bernard Herrmann… would love to take him to see Psycho at the Schnitz!

  73. Matt Shoobridge October 29, 2010 at 11:37 am #

    I want to spend Halloween this year at Hitchcock’s Psycho Halloween event! Please!


  74. Mike "Bowtie Tuesdays" Noel October 29, 2010 at 2:42 pm #

    i’ve never been to the symphony and I love Psycho(s)

  75. Hilary October 29, 2010 at 2:55 pm #

    I’m a crazy woman who has been threatened by a crazier guy with a knife. So I can relive some fond memories set to some amazingly evocative music. It’s a cinematic version of shock therapy. I wanna go soooooo bad!

  76. Renee Harper October 30, 2010 at 2:54 pm #

    Would really love to win these tickets. I’m a big Hitchcock fan and have seen everything he’s done (even the romantic comedy movie!) but have NEVER seen Psycho for some reason. I’d die to see this with the symphony. Please pick me. Thank so much for the opportunity.
