Film and TV series soundtracks have the power to make or break a scene, and when done right, they can capture the emotional essence of the story. A memorable theme or melody can become synonymous with the characters and the story they inhabit, etching its way into popular culture. To celebrate this crucial part of filmmaking, Candlelight is paying tribute to some of the most iconic soundtracks in film and anime history at some of Cincinnati’s most breathtaking venues for a one-of-a-kind musical experience.
The Candlelight series is coming to illuminate The Transept, Woodward Theater and Bell Event Center in a series of incredibly uplifting and deeply moving concerts. Let yourself be transported to the movies as a string quartet performs the most iconic compositions from universally adored films and anime, including Edward Scissorhands, Tokyo Ghoul, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, and many more.
Halloween just got a whole lot spookier thanks to these enchanting Candlelight concerts. Taking place at Rhinegeist Brewery and Woodward Theater, these candlelit concerts pay tribute to beloved Halloween movies and TV show classics. This October, Listeso String Quartet will be performing songs such as Thriller and Funeral March of a Marionette as well as compositions from films and series including Stranger Things, Halloween, Ghostbusters, The Addams Family and more.
Whether you’re a fan of anime series, action and Sci-Fi films, or simply of “bio-exorcists”, Candlelight is offering a wide range of cinematic tributes in Cincinnati. With two back-to-back performances each night, you can choose whichever suits your schedule best.
This season, see The Transept, Woodward Theater and Bell Event Centre light up with a sea of flickering candles and emotion-evoking melodies of your favorite movie and series soundtracks.
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
