You can separate a true fan of a particular movie or tv show from your average viewer by the two seconds it takes them to recognise its theme song. The Candlelight series continues to celebrate the power of music made for the screen with various tributes to studios and award-winning composers. This year, Candlelight is exploring the emotional depth and complexity of soundtracks composed by the likes of Hans Zimmer and Joe Hisaishi.
All of the drama and cinematic beauty of tv shows and films is being recreated through music at unique venues across Calgary. These magical Candlelight concerts are being hosted at the impressive Hangar Flight Museum and The Lantern Community Church.
Celebrate the holidays with an incredible classical tribute at some of the city’s most stunning venues. Magical Candlelight concerts are coming to town to illuminate the Gaetz Memorial United Church, The Lantern Community Church, and more this holiday season.
Listen to nostalgic Christmas songs, from the likes of “Joy to the World”, “Angels We Have Heard on High” to “The Nutcracker” performed by a talented string quartet. You can’t get in the holiday spirit while listening to iconic festive songs, many of which feature in some of your favourite Christmas films, that will forever be part of the holiday repertoire. Simply sit back, relax and be swept away by the beauty of candlelight.
Hearing your favourite theme songs or film scores at an intimate Candlelight concert is a unique way to discover something new about the shows you adore or appreciate the music as a separate, moving piece.
The Candlelight series takes place twice each night with two back to back 60-65 minute performances. Doors will open 30 minutes prior to each show.
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
