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 Chicago this October, just in time for the 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 the sinister classic by Modest Mussorgsky’s “Night on Bald Mountain” from Fantasia. 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.
That venue is none other than a restored 60,000 square foot warehouse by the name of Salvage One. Exposed brick walls and large windows surround an eclectic mix of furniture while a quiet exterior courtyard is hidden within walls of ivy.
The combination of reclaimed rustic aesthetic and verdant accents creates an eerie yet charming space characterized by the ensuing battle between historic infrastructure and blossoming nature. It is intimate, chilling, and sets the perfect spooky atmosphere!
Shows will begin in October, with two showtimes each evening, at 6:30 and 9:15 pm. Each concert will last 60 minutes and doors open 75 minutes prior to showtime.
Don’t miss out on what’s sure to be one of Chicago’s most popular events this Halloween season! Purchase your tickets to this incredible concert here.
All shows will follow the government guidelines for safety measures and the events will always operate at safe capacities set out by law.
