Candlelight concerts explore numerous music genres, including jazz, neo-soul, hip-hop, rock, and classical. And, this season the renowned series is celebrating the power of music composed for the screen. From tv shows like Friends to hit films like Laputa Castle in the Sky, these one-of-a-kind concerts are delving deep down into the cinematic realm of music.
The Candlelight series is coming to illuminate the Granada Theater and Westminster Presbyterian Sanctuary with dazzling classical performances of iconic soundtracks and film scores. Settle in at these magnificent venues and fall under the spell of some of the most recognizable music of all time.
Ring in the new year with a special tribute to one of the greatest living composers in music history, Joe Hisaishi. He’s also a musical director, conductor and pianist, but we best know him for his immense contribution to cinema and the world of anime, scoring over 100 films since the 1980s.
Hear “Opening Theme” from Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, “Path of the Wind” from My Neighbour Totoro and many more moving melodies at the historic Westminster Presbyterian Sanctuary.
Granada Theater is getting a musical glow this season, as the talented musicians of Listeso String Quartet take to the stage to recreate some of the most beloved magical movie soundtracks in cinema history.
Think of classics in the likes of “Circle of Life” from The Lion King, “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” from Toy Story, and “Under the Sea” from The Little Mermaid. Journey back to some of your favorite childhood moments as you listen to these melodies and more everlasting songs this winter!
Whether you are a fan of action films, anime series or romantic pictures, Candlelight is bringing plenty of cinematic variety to Minneapolis. What’s more, with two back-to-back performances of each concert on the night, you can find a show that suits your schedule.
Why not go all out and plan a pre or post-show dinner to make the evening extra special? Invite your friends, family, or enjoy a peaceful moment to yourself at one of these spectacular Candlelight concerts.
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
