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 and Evanston this October, just in time for the spooky season. This time, they’ve got a special event planned, with Candlelight: A Haunted Evening of Halloween Classics, 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.
The concert venues are the Wicker Park Lutheran Church in Chicago, founded in 1879, featuring beautiful stained glass windows, and St. Luke’s Episcopal Church at the corner of Hinman and Lee in the vibrant town of Evanston. These intimate venues set the tone for a perfectly spooky atmosphere for these concerts!
Each concert will last 60 minutes and doors open 45 minutes prior to showtime.
