  • I cried...Brought me back to when I first immigrated to the States struggling with the language and making friends. The nostalgia of hearing a piece from a beloved movie that I bonded over with my first friends. It reminded me how much music is such a universal language. The performers are so full of character and life! Tons of laughs in between sets. So glad I went.
  • Such a magical experience unlike anything I've ever seen around here! I cannot wait to see another candlelight concert!!
  • This was amazing! The Metropolis String Quartet did a beautiful job, and I hope to see them again soon!!

  • A beautiful and wonderful experience. Talented musicians and ethereal atmosphere
  • Fever’s Candlelight events are great overall! I really like that they hire local and talented musicians to perform the live music. The only downside is that the events are a little too short. Some of the songs in this Joe Hisashi tribute were performed much too quickly, which took away from some of their emotional impact.
  • Awesome experience!

  • Excellent staff and performance
  • Amazing! Beautiful experience
