Candlelight is taking over the 305 with these Halloween concerts that are sure to give you all the chills and thrills of the spooky season. This October, let the ominous yet melodic sounds of the violin possess you as you enjoy your favorite Halloween classics surrounded by flickering candles.
The Candlelight Chamber Orchestra, as well as the talented Listeso String Quartet, will give you goosebumps and send shivers down your spine with their chilling renditions of iconic Halloween-themed tunes. Songs such as Charles Gounod’s “Funeral March of a Marionette”, spine-tingling scores from movies like Psycho and Ghostbusters and iconic tunes of Día de los Muertos will sound at these bewitching evenings filled with music, light and magic.
This October 28, Pinecrest Gardens will welcome the Candlelight Chamber Orchestra, thousands of candles and double, double toil and trouble for a symphonic nightmare. Just as ghouls want to have fun, so do foolish mortals, and they’ll get to experience spine-tingling renditions of iconic Halloween tunes.
Bach’s “Toccata and Fugue in D Minor”, Camille Saint-Saëns’ “Danse Macabre”, Modest Mussorgsky’s “Night on Bald Mountain” and more will sound while they’re performed on strings, percussion and woodwind instruments.
A number of more contemporary songs will feature like “Tubular Bells” from The Exorcist, John Carpenter’s Halloween theme song, and a medley of songs from The Nightmare Before Christmas, among others. Let the ghoul times roll at this hauntingly beautiful evening of magic and light.
Miami’s Jungle Island is no stranger to Candlelight but this November, they’ve got all the treats because they’re celebrating Dia de los Muertos with a special Candlelight Open-Air edition. An eerie breeze will circle throughout this outdoor venue as leaves rustle in the distance to form the natural melodies of the spooky season.
Sit for a spell and enjoy the songs to be performed by the Listeso String Quartet, which include “Recuérdame” from the film Coco, the Mexican waltz “Dios Nunca Muere”, and popular numbers such as “La Martiniana”, “La Bruja”, and “La Llorona”. And to keep the spooky vibes going, other songs to feature include classics like Charles Gounod’s “Funeral March of a Marionette” and “Der Erlkönig” by Franz Schubert.
Invite your friends, go with family or even attend these ghostly music shows by Candlelight on your own and fall under the spell of Halloween.
