A Haunting Evening of Halloween Classics – Detroit Candlelight Concert Review

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. Fever’s latest Candlelight Concert event featured the music of notable spooky tunes for the Halloween season.

The event was held at the historic Redford Theatre in Detroit, a place I have visited a few times for a variety of events. This gorgeous theatre opened in 1928 and has been restored over the years with updated technology while also keeping its historic charm for guests who attend the venue. Like the previous concert I attended for Fever at Redford, this theatre provided a cozy and intimate setting for the evening’s concert. The lobby and theatre space were illuminated by candlelight and Halloween décor that filled up the space.

Guests arrived at the concert in their best evening wear along with Halloween costumes and attire. The Listeso Quartet, who were the musicians for the concert also got dressed for the spooky theme as well which added to the overall atmosphere. The haunting melodies of Horror film scores, classical music, and notable pop culture tunes filled the theatre with its strong acoustics. 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 awe, a few sang along to the songs, and by the end of the show, many attendees were clapping their hands to the music. It made the show a relaxing yet interactive musical experience.

I always enjoy live music concerts and the Candlelight Concerts are so much fun to attend. I appreciated the variety of songs in the program and some scores that introduced me to music I was unfamiliar with. Hearing some of the horror film scores such as the theme from Psycho were absolutely bone-chilling while songs like The Sorcerer’s Apprentice gave listeners an exciting thrill! It was a memorable concert that provided a nice reprieve from a long week at work.

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 spooky season experience.

*I was invited to this event by Fever for my honest opinion.
