Get ready for the spooky season with a haunting evening of classical renditions of your favorite Halloween ready songs at this Candlelit concert.
Candlelight, the internationally popular classical concert series, is returning to Minneapolis this October with the perfect event to get you into the spooky mood. It’s called Candlelight: A Haunted Evening of Halloween Classics at the St. Paul Athletic Club and Westminster Presbyterian Sanctuary, set to bring you a memorable and hauntingly beautiful evening of classical renditions of your favorite spooky songs performed by the Listeso String Quartet.
You’re in for a medley of Halloween-ready tunes like Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” ““This Is Halloween” from The Nightmare Before Christmas, Frédéric Chopin’s “Marche Funèbre,” and a selection of themes from your favorite spooky movies from Psycho to Beetlejuice. You’ll savor these creepy compositions in a uniquely spooky atmosphere made all the more chilling by flickering candlelight and the bated breath of your fellow listeners.
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
The St Paul Athletic Club provides the perfect backdrop for a haunted evening. It’s an intimate yet beautiful venue that’ll draw you into an immersive evening of haunting musical mastery.
The Westminster Presbyterian Sanctuary, a venue steeped in history found on the National Register of Historic Places. This architectural gem features a semi-circular design that can seat 1,500 guests and truly sparkles under the glow of hundreds of flickering candles.
Shows will begin in October, with two showtimes each evening: 6pm and 8:30pm. Each concert will last 65 minutes, with doors opening 45 minutes prior to the start time.
