Gist Piano Center
Kentuckiana Boos and Ghouls unleash their talent upon the innocent at Halloweekend - only at Gist Piano Center.

Return to Halloweekend

Louisville: October 20-21

The Search Begins Soon.

Three years. It's been three years since the legendary Halloweekend horror that changed a sleepy Kentuckiana piano community forever.

...three years since hundreds of piano students went off into the woods looking for some clue as to the whereabouts of their lost friends and fellow pianists - only to find a "music therapy" clinic run by a host of mentally insane Gist Piano Center employees. The students vanished without a trace... and so did the clinic. Despite countless searches, not one of them has been seen since that frightening Fall weekend.

Now - three years later - a brave team of explorers will return to that haunted site. Following up on a mysterious note with ties to the Halloweekend vanishing, this intrepid team will once again search for "key" clues to the whereabouts of these missing students.
