Experience a hauntingly beautiful evening with classical renditions of your favorite spooky songs at these Candlelit concerts.
Candlelight, the wildly popular musical series, is back in Detroit this October, just in time for spooky season. This time, they’ve got a special event planned, with Candlelight: A Haunted Evening of Classical Composers, an atmospheric evening filled with classic renditions of some of your favorite haunting melodies.
Think songs like Danny Elfman’s classic, “This is Halloween,” John Carpenter’s “Halloween Theme,” Bernard Herrman’s “Psycho Theme” and even “Hedwig’s Theme” from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. All of these songs, and more, will be played by a talented string quartet in an atmospherically chilling venue made even more ominous by a sea of flickering candlelight.
The venue, Detroit’s Masonic Temple, is the world’s largest Masonic Temple and a building steeped in history. The nearly century-old building includes three theatres (including one that was never completed), and a magnificent lobby inspired by the interior of a Sicilian castle. The venue is intimate, chilling, and sets the perfect spooky atmosphere!
Shows will begin in October, with two show times each evening, at 6:30 and 9:15pm. Each concert will last 60 minutes and doors open 75 minutes prior to showtime. Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
Don’t miss out on what’s sure to be one of Detroit’s most popular events this Halloween season! Purchase your tickets to this incredible concert here.
