Soundtracks are a beautiful accompaniment to our favorite movies. Iconic songs bring back memories of love, sadness, heartbreak and hope. Now you have the chance to relive 100 years of songs made popular by Warner Bros. during a candlelight concert taking place inside a gorgeous historic church in New York.
“Candlelight: 100 Years of Warner Bros.” celebrates the upcoming centennial of the movie studio. This concert will take place in a unique setting as the stage will be filled with hundreds of candles while the theater lights are dimmed.
The Highline String Quartet will perform more than a dozen selections such as “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” from “The Wizard of Oz,” “Pure Imagination” from “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,” the themes from “Purple Rain” and “Batman,” the “Friends” TV theme and “Hogwarts’ Anthem” from “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.” Your kids should be 8 or older to attend, especially since they’ll appreciate the music more, but anyone under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
Candlelight: 100 Years of Warner Bros. will be held at 6:30 pm and 9 pm April 20 at St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church, 157 Montague St., Brooklyn, New York. St. Ann’s was built as Church of the Holy Trinity in 1847 and became the oldest Episcopal parish in Brooklyn in 1969. It has some of the earliest figural stained-glass windows in the U.S. crafted by William Jay Bolton and was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1987.
New York is one of 25 stops along the tour, which will travel to London, Paris, Singapore, Milan, São Paulo and Mexico City. The concert is presented by Fever and Candlelight. Tickets range from $35-$65 and are on sale now.
