  • It was my first Candlelight concert, highly recommend this for introverts/ classical music enthusiasts. The Listeso String Quartet did a splendid job, it was moving & sound was unreal. Feels like all my childhood/ fav ghibli movies came to life. The venue was great, well decorated (loved every details) and the staff were nice! Will be back for other events in the future :)
  • Loved it. It was like a dream, I escaped my body and drifted into a ghibli movie world. Everyday, I’ll be wishing to experience it again. I literally don’t have the words, it was like going back in time when nothing mattered and this is all you need sometimes. To remember.
  • Better than I could have ever imagined.
  • An amazing experience, very moving.
  • Absolutely wonderful ❤️🔥
