  • This was a great holiday evening activity. The music was great to watch and even to close your eyes and listen. The 4,100 candles lit the stage perfectly
  • The venue was AMAZING, and the Listeso String Quartet? SO entertaining and enjoyable. And, on top of everything else, it was my FIRST "candlelight" concert. When the lights went down, I started crying because it was so beautiful - then the music began! Right out of the gate, the quartet was entertaining without being standoffish. It was worth every penny of the ticket price!
  • This is my second candlelight event and they just keep getting better and better. Beautiful venues and beautiful music!! Cannot wait for my third event on 17 December!!
