Trick or treat? This Halloween, the Listeso String Quartet will head to Philadelphia’s magnificent Laurel Hill Cemetery to bring you what is sure to be a treat. Visitors will be led through a candlelit path toward a spectacular performance of Halloween classics, some from spine-tingling movie soundtracks.
As the candles flicker around you and the wind howls through the trees, the powerful sound of strings will punctuate the air. You can expect to hear tracks like ‘Marche Funèbre’ by Frédéric Chopin, the theme from Beetlejuice by Danny Elfman, and another of his songs – ‘Medley’ from The Nightmare Before Christmas. As these mysterious melodies echo throughout the crisp fall evening, expect the hair on your arms to rise.
Halloween is a special time of year, celebrated across the world in different forms and this year you can mark the occasion with something completely different. These Candlelight concerts will run for 65 minutes, bringing you just over an hour of spine-tingling tunes. They’re perfect for date nights and for families with kids over 8, but you can always visit alone (if you dare).
