If you’re looking for the perfect way to celebrate Halloween this year, head down to Phoenix Zoo with the family or some friends and experience a one-of-a-kind, spine-chilling treat. The Candlelight series invites guests to immerse themselves in an evening bathed in the glow of candles and set to the melodies of Halloween’s greatest hits.
Listen to the likes of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and The Addams Family theme song while sitting out at the open-air venue accompanied by all of the ghosts and goblins lurking in the shadows. Combining the flickering light of candles and the spooky notes of scary soundtracks, these Halloween-themed Candlelight concerts are set to keep you on the edge of your seat.
Surrounded by wildlife and nature at Phoenix Zoo, the Candlelight series will create the perfect ambience fit for a happy Howl-oween! A talented Listeso string quartet will sit before you and perform classical renditions of music taken from horrifying films, tv series, and more. Let the ghoul times roll as you relive some of the most chilling moments in cinema and music history.
Charles Gounod’s “Funeral March of a Marionette”, John Carpenter’s Halloween theme, Franz Schubert’s “Der Erlkönig”, and more will be reimagined at this intimate Candlelight concert in Phoenix. With several performances taking place in October, you’ll easily find a concert that suits your schedule.
See what’s up our sleeve, this All Hallows’ Eve as the evening grows darker and the music becomes more thrilling. With a sudden pluck of the cello and a threatening sound from the violin, you’ll be transported to some of the most eerie, fictional worlds.
Shows will take place on October 13 and October 20, with two showtimes each evening, at 7:00 pm and 9:00 pm. Each concert will last 65 minutes and doors open 30 minutes prior to showtime.
Note that for the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
