  • This was our first experience with Candlelight. We had a blast and would recommend. We choose this because of the Sci-Fi / Fantasy music that would be played. Thanks for providing us a fun date night.

  • Calm cozy setting with beautiful music. Loved the set list!
  • The space was fantastic - so clean and beautiful! I would have loved a program to follow along and then we wouldn't have needed them to tell us between what was next and maybe could have filled with information about the artists and I loved the details/fun facts about the music.
  • The orchestral group was smaller than I expected, but still did a tight job of arranging the songs specifically to their group.
