The very best of Joe Hisaishi is being celebrated at this spectacular Candlelight concert taking place at Holy Trinity Cathedral. Immerse yourself in a 65-minute performance dedicated to the Japanese composer’s moving pieces. Town with an Ocean View, Tabi Tachi, Laputa Castle in the Sky, and Merry Go Round of Life are some of the works being reimagined by candlelight.
A talented string quartet is coming to St Peter’s Cathedral in Hamilton to pay tribute to some of Hans Zimmer’s greatest works. Allow yourself to be transported back to the memorable scenes in films such as Gladiator, The Holiday, Pirates of the Caribbean, and The Lion King travelling on the soothing air of renditions of the German composer’s famous compositions. Movie lovers are more than familiar with Zimmer’s combination of traditional orchestrations and electronic music sounds, and this special concert is set to capture the distinctive spirit of his famous works.
The spectacular atmosphere created by hundreds of candles and an impressive venue somehow brings the magic of legendary films and tv series to life in a new and unexpected way. Immerse yourself in an evening of cinema and music at one of these unique Candlelight performances in Auckland.
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
