All Hallows’ Eve is looming, which can only mean one thing. As children dressed up in their spooky costumes roam the streets for candy, there’s a chill in the air that’s equally as magical as it is eerie. To celebrate the spooky season, Candlelight presents this series of spellbinding concerts in Sacramento. This October, the hair-raising sounds of iconic Halloween songs and scores performed on strings will echo through one of the city’s most impressive settings while a sea of candles illuminates everything around you.
When it comes to these magical concerts, the devil is in the details. Hundreds of twinkling candles will be meticulously placed around California State Railroad Museum to provide an enchanting ambiance perfect to put audiences under a musical spell. What’s more, the chilling melodies and spine-tingling tunes from movies such as Psycho, The Exorcist and more performed by a string quartet are sure to cause a fright or two.
Kicking off this year’s trick-or-treat season is a magical tribute to the most iconic horror movies taking place on the frightful Friday 13. Be reintroduced to the wicked Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street, relive the cold deathly stare of Halloween’s Michael Myers and the blood-curdling cries from Physcho’s iconic shower scene as a string quartet performs the spine-tingling scores from these terrific movies and many more. Evil monsters and terrifying villains come alive at this super spooky evening filled with spellbinding live music and the enchanting glow of candlelight.
As Halloween inches closer, Candlelight will also be paying homage to your favorite Halloween-themed songs on October 27 and 28. Alongside the scary scores from horror classics like The Exorcist, Listeso String Quartet will be performing songs from The Nightmare Before Christmas, Ghostbusters and more family-friendly movies as well as songs such as Michael Jackson’s Thriller. When things get scary, a little light-hearted relief goes a long way. The classical renditions of these wonderful songs can even prevent the heebie-jeebies from following you on your way home from the concert, although we can’t guarantee it.
Not much beats the spooky season. Witches, wizards, werewolves and vampires roam the streets asking for candy and creepy ghost stories haunt bedrooms up and down the country. Celebrating All Hallows’ Eve this fall is this series of magical Candlelight concerts taking place at California State Railroad Museum. Get ready to be enveloped by music and light as you bring in the spooky season the only way Candlelight knows how.
