A soundtrack truly has the power to make or break a movie or TV show. Fantastic scores heighten emotions and elevate scenes while lackluster compositions can leave audiences feeling underwhelmed and disappointed. To celebrate this essential audio layer of on-screen magic, Candlelight is paying tribute to the iconic soundtracks of your favorite movies and shows right here in Chicago.
As a special treat for music and movie fans, venues such as Wicker Park Lutheran Church are hosting magnificent concerts. Let yourself be transported to the movies as a string quartet performs the most iconic compositions from universally adored films and series for over 60-65 minutes of musical magic.
Candlelight will be paying homage to one of the most brilliant composers of our time, Joe Hisaishi. During his lengthy association with Studio Ghibli, the Japanese composer has scored nearly all of Hayao Miyazaki’s animated films. And now, anime fans are able listen to music from Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke, and more by candlelight. Rediscover Hisaishi, seven-time winner of the Japanese Academy Award for Best Music, at this mesmerizing performance.
Movie buffs won’t want to miss out on these mesmerizing Candlelight concerts taking place in Chicago this season. Watch how Music Box Theatre lights up with the flickering glow of hundreds of candles and the soothing compositions of your favorite movie and series soundtracks.
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
