Candlelight: A Haunted Evening of Halloween Classics

Who can’t remember the haunting melodies of Tubular Bells from The Exorcist that still give us chills every time we hear it? Or the iconic Addams Family theme that perfectly reflects the franchise’s eerie motifs. This year, Candlelight invites you to celebrate the ooky-spooky season listening to some of the most iconic horror movie soundtracks (and horror-themed songs) part of the Candlelight Halloween Special.

Movie soundtracks enhance the emotional impact of a film and are a crucial part of storytelling. Particularly in horror films, music has the ability to evoke powerful emotions and reactions in audiences, building tension, suspense, and even anxiety. Revisit your favorite spine-chilling moments on screen in a dimly lit room by candlelight.

Candlelight concerts bring the magic of a live, multi-sensory musical experience to awe-inspiring locations like never seen before in Asheville. Get your tickets now to discover the music of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons & More at AyurPrana Listening Room under the gentle glow of candlelight.

What is Candlelight?

Candlelight is a series of concerts that are all performed by classically-trained musicians. Solo pianists, string quartets and other musical ensembles take to the stage to envelop and enchant audiences with a rich tapestry of sound all while hundreds—sometimes thousands—of LED candles flicker and twinkle and cast light onto the walls. It’s almost as if the flameless light magically dances to the notes being played.

Gone is the production element and from behind the studio effects, your favorite songs resound as you’ve never heard them before. It’s a sight and sound to behold, and one that you’ll want to experience again and again.
