Fever is a company known for putting together one-of-a-kind events for its audiences around the globe. Their Candlelight Concert series creates a unique ambiance for listeners through the hundreds of candles that will illuminate the venue, creating a peaceful atmosphere that will add to the overall musical experience. This Candlelight Concert event featured music that was geared towards fans of Anime as the set list featured a wide variety of Anime OSTs.
The event was held at the historic Saints Peter and Paul Jesuit Church located in Downtown Detroit. This gorgeous church building was completed in 1848 and designated as a national historic landmark site in 1971. Like the previous concerts I have attended for Fever, this church (though a large venue) provided a cozy and intimate setting for the evening’s concert. The altar which acted as the performance stage for the venue was illuminated by candlelight everywhere.
The Kalkaska Quartet, who were the musicians for the concert got everyone moving along to the music for the evening starting the program off with a theme song from Tokyo Ghoul. The church’s tall and arched ceiling made for great acoustics! The string instrument sounds resonated across the venue so everyone could hear from the front to the back (it was a sold-out show). The musicians were lively and fun, taking the time to introduce each song and getting the audience involved as well. Some sat in wonderment and a few sang along to the songs as well. It made the show a relaxing yet interactive musical experience.
This concert is must attend who any who loves Anime OSTs along with their Studio Ghibli Concert which is coming up again in January. The music truly spoke to me as a fan who has been watching Anime since middle school. This concert had music from new and older anime that filled me and other attendees with a heavy sense of nostalgia. Hearing music from InuYasha, Case Closed, and Sailor Moon made this concert very heartwarming to me as those were some of the shows that got me into watching Anime. It was truly a magical and animated experience!
If this event finds its way into your city, we highly recommend you attend! It is perfect for a romantic date night, a group event, or if you’re looking for a new animated musical experience.
