Besides Christmas, there’s probably few other holidays we love more than Halloween. This year, you can add a new plan to your spooky season celebrations. Candlelight is bringing three spook-tastic concerts to Vancouver that are taking on spine-chilling Halloween classics and giving them a classical twist.
Think “Tubular Bells” from The Exorcist, “Suspiria” by Goblin or The Beetlejuice Theme by Danny Elfman. Taking place at two spook-tacular and hauntingly beautiful venues in the likes of the Kerrisdale Presbyterian Church and Christchurch Cathedral, these concerts are sure to get you in a ghostly spirit!
Candlelight invites you to rediscover famous and iconic chart-topping hits by the legendary British band Queen. They’re known for their theatrics, powerful anthems and elaborate instrumentals. And ever since their debut in the 70s, their songs have become staples in radio programmes, celebrations and karaoke nights. They continue to be as relevant as ever and we continue singing their songs with nostalgia and joy.
“I Want To Break Free”, “Somebody To Love”, “Bohemian Rhapsody” and other iconic works by Puccini, Mozart and more are only a few of the songs that will be brought to life at Christ Church Cathedral by Listeso String Quartet.
