One thing that really makes children’s movies magical is the incredible soundtracks that accompany them. You can’t think of Lion King without remembering “Hakuna Matata”, or of the Jungle Book without launching into a verse of “The Bare Necessities”. These songs had a huge impact on me as a child, and I’m sure many people can relate!
That is why Candlelight Concerts will be hosting a night dedicated to the Best of Magical Movie Soundtracks on the 31st of March at the Wesley church in Wellington. With two performances, the first at 6:30pm and again at 8:30pm the audience will be taken on a journey through some of the most memorable songs in movie history.
Hear your favourite movie songs recreated by classically trained musicians.
You can look forward to classics such as “Colors of the Wind” from Pocahontas, “Tale As Old As Time” from Beauty & The Beast, “Part Of Your World” from Little Mermaid and “You’ll Be In My Heart” from Tarzan”.
Wesley Church in Wellington, is a stunning venue located in the heart of the city. The church’s beautiful stained glass windows and ornate interior create a unique and intimate atmosphere that is ideal for musical performances. The church’s high ceilings and wooden pews, all contribute to creating a warm and resonant sound as the musicians perform.
Be swept away by the music under the soft glow of candlelight.
Throughout the event, the Wesley church will be transformed as hundreds of candles cast a soft yellow glow against the walls. And the timeless songs will be brought to life by classically trained musicians.
With tickets starting at $30 this candlelight concert is the perfect evening for movie lovers, music fanatics and anyone who loves a trip down memory lane. Make sure to book your tickets in advance to avoid disappointment!
