Many of us find ourselves singing along to the soundtracks of legendary films like The Wizard of Oz. The power of the music accompanying a movie or tv show is remarkable. Award-winning composers such as Hans Zimmer and Joe Hisaishi have been reaching audiences for years with their magical compositions. And, a selection of Candlelight concerts in D.C. are celebrating some of the greatest film scores and soundtracks.
The historic Miracle Theatre, St. Francis Hall and The Howard Theatre are set to host a variety of classical performances inspired by movies and tv shows. Between animated classics, video game scores and 100 years worth of Warner Bros. films, there are plenty of Candlelight concerts honoring cinema to choose from.
Many anime fans will be more than familiar with Hisaishi’s moving compositions. Known for his association with Studio Ghibli and his minimalist style, some the Japanese composer’s greatest pieces are being reimagined by the Kennedy String Quartet at St. Francis Hall. Immerse yourself in a 60-minute performance inspired by My Neighbour Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Spirited Away, and more.
These stunning Candlelight concerts will be illuminating the Miracle Theatre in Washington D.C. What’s more, you can choose from a variety of performances to find the one that suits your tastes best. Celebrate Hans Zimmer, Joe Hisaishi, and other timeless composers at an intimate concert.
Why not make a night of it and organise a pre or post-show dinner? Bring your family and friends along. If you are looking for a way to unwind, you can always attend a concert alone for some tranquility.
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
