Soundtracks serve a purpose and a good soundtrack, one that ticks all the boxes, will weave a fine thread through the plot and the characters to the audiences through sound. It will amplify the on-screen action and it will create memorable moments. Candlelight continues to celebrate the power of music made for the screen in Raleigh with a special tribute to Anime at All Saints Chapel.
Experience the magic of listening to iconic and beloved music from some of the most popular anime franchises. Naruto, Inuyash, Full Metal Alchemist (Brotherhood), Sailor Moon, and Dragon Ball, are just some of the timeless classics that will be featured under the glow of hundreds of candles.
As the third most in-demand subgenre worldwide, Anime is not lacking in fans around the world. Combining graphic art, OTT characterization, and focusing on the use of setting as well as camera techniques to progress the narrative, it has developed a great deal since its early beginnings and its music has become a genre in its own right. Often featuring long, dramatic melodies and complex chord progressions, the music of Anime is different from Western pop music and yet it has helped find it a home on our screens.
Candlelight: Favorite Anime Themes special takes place at the All Saints Chapel—an elegant former Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd in the historic Oakwood neighborhood. Guests can experience their favorite anime tracks played out by talented musicians as the glow of hundreds of candles flicker around the historic walls of the opulent landmark. Nostalgic anime classics, including a Studio Ghibli medley as well as songs from Tokyo Ghoul, Neon Genesis Evangelion and Death Note, will be performed by Lyricosa String Quartet offering a truly unforgettable musical experience.
Candlelight pays tribute to the sounds of our screens, from famous film scores by legendary composers to our favorite TV series. Favorite Anime Themes is no different, and fans of the genre will be entranced by the melodies resounding throughout the chapel. However, audiences unfamiliar with the genre will not be amiss as the musical pedigree of the compositions and talent of the musicians shall shine as bright as the candles illuminating the space.
