The bewitching holiday that creeps up on us every October has woven its magical spell into the hearts of people worldwide. Halloween’s like an enticing cauldron of enchantment, blending history, mystery and some good old fun. It offers the perfect escapism from reality and allows us to transform into fantastical beings and explore the supernatural realms lurking in our imagination. This spooky season, Candlelight invites you to celebrate the beloved holiday at chilling tributes to the most iconic Halloween songs and horror movie soundtracks.
Think “Tubular Bells” from The Exorcist to Bernard Herrmann’s Psycho Theme and Danny Elfman’s Beetlejuice Theme, these hair-raising and unforgettable melodies continue to haunt us in our nightmares. Taking place at the creepy St. Ignatius Church
These Halloween classics possess an eerie power that has haunted our nightmares since their release. They conjure a sense of impending doom and terrify us to the core. They stand as a testament to the timeless power of music to crawl beneath our skin and awaken our deepest fears.
Immerse yourself in your favorite Halloween-themed tunes like Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” Stranger Things theme, The Addams Family theme, the Ghostbusters theme, “This is Halloween” from The Nightmare Before Christmas and more. All of these songs will be played by the talented Listeso String Quartet in an atmospherically chilling venue, made even more ominous by a sea of flickering candlelight.
For some extra fun, celebrate the unluckiest day of the year at a spine-tingling concert by candlelight. Listen to iconic scores that invoke a primal fear deep within us every time we hear them played. Whether it’s the screeching violins of Psycho that mimic the rhythmic beating of a disturbed heart, or the frantic notes of the Beetlejuice theme, that warn of a looming danger.
Part of the Halloween special, the unnerving concert will take place at the beautiful yet nightmarish St. Ignatius Church. It will be an unforgettable night you don’t want to miss out on.
This spooky season, while you don’t have to ditch the thrill of donning elaborate costumes and trick or treating, you can also listen to breathtaking classical tributes to some of your favorite Halloween songs.
Shows will begin in October, with two back-to-back performances scheduled each evening. The concerts will last 60-65 minutes and doors open 60 minutes prior to showtime.
