Fever is a company known for putting together unique events for its audience around the world. Their Candlelight Concert Series creates a unique atmosphere for listeners through hundreds of candles that will illuminate the venue, creating a peaceful atmosphere that will add to the total musical experience. This Candlelight Concert event featured music that was aimed at fans of Anime as the set list featured a wide variety of Anime OSTs.
The event was held at the historic Saints Peter and Paul Jesuit Church located in Downtown Detroit. This lovely church building was completed in 1848 and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1971. Like the previous concerts I have attended for Fever, this church (but a large venue) provided a cozy and intimate setting for tonight’s concert. The altar that served as the stage for the performance was illuminated by candlelight throughout.
The Kalkaska Quartet, who were the musicians for the concert, got everyone moving to the music for the evening and started the program with a theme song from Tokyo Ghoul. The church’s high and curved roof provided great acoustics! The sounds of string instruments reverberated across the venue for everyone to hear from front to back (it was a sold out show). The musicians were lively and fun, taking time to introduce each song and engaging the audience as well. Some sat wondering and some sang along to the songs too. It made the show a relaxing yet interactive musical experience.
This concert is a must attend as anyone who loves Anime OSTs along with their Studio Ghibli concert coming up again in January. The music really spoke to me as a fan who has been watching Anime since middle school. This concert had music from new and older anime that filled me and other attendees with a heavy sense of nostalgia. Hearing music from InuYasha, Case Closed and Sailor Moon made this concert very heartwarming for me as they were some of the shows that made me watch Anime. It was truly a magical and animated experience!
If this event finds its way to your city, we highly recommend you attend! It’s perfect for a romantic date night, a group event, or if you’re looking for a new animated musical experience.
