The Candlelight series invites you to listen to classical renditions of awe-inspiring soundtracks being performed at the Redford Theatre surrounded by hundreds of flickering candles. We all associate a particular song with a movie or tv show, whether it’s the theme song or a popular hit appearing in the production. Candlelight is celebrating the power of this nostalgic connection to music that soundtracks and scores establish.
A talented string quartet will take to the historic stage to recreate compositions by the likes of Hans Zimmer and Joe Hisaishi. From films like A Star is Born to Spirited Away, various cinematic moments will be explored.
Most of us are familiar with the name Hans Zimmer. If not, you are certainly familiar with his compositions. You can recognize his talent in the adventurous spirit of Pirates of the Caribbean’s theme song and Sherlock Holmes’ intriguing “Discombobulate”. Zimmer approaches his craft by combining electronic sounds and traditional orchestral arrangements. The drama and intensity of his music are perfectly suited to the atmosphere of an intimate Candlelight concert.
Although it may seem impossible to capture the gravity of an influential film score or soundtrack, the Candlelight series takes legendary music to new heights. Experience a multisensory performance inspired by spectacular productions and guided by the works of musical geniuses.
Make a night of it and plan for a pre or post-show dinner. If you’re a movie buff, you definitely don’t want to miss out on this hommage to the film industry and popular tv series.
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
