For one night only, Candlelight is collaborating with the UN Refugee Agency in order to put on a series of benefit concerts here in Houston.
Candlelight presents a series of benefit concerts in favor of refugees in collaboration with UNHCR, The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. All profits will go to help the refugees affected by the situation in Ukraine.
On Sunday, September 18, the Resurrection Metropolitan Community Church will transform into a glittering stage aglow with countless flickering candles to host two sublime performances.
The all-Ukrainian program will range from rarely heard chamber music by preeminent Ukrainian composers, to folk songs and popular songs made famous by Ukrainian cinema at this breathtaking benefit concert.
The concerts will feature a string octet with piano and vocals performing works of Vasyl Barvinsky, Boris Lyatoshinsky,Valentin Silvestrov, Mikhail Skorulski, and Myroslav Skoryk.
General admission tickets are now on sale priced at $45. The concert will take place twice on September 18, starting with a 60-minute performance at 6:30 pm. The second concert will take place at 9 pm. Doors open one hour prior to each show.
And after having enormous success around the world—in cities like Paris, Barcelona, Dallas, Austin, and New York—the experience simply known as Candlelight has made it to Houston!
The concerts have been met by countless 5-star reviews, and guests have called it “a creative, enchanting, and new concert experience” and that “the performers were fantastic!”
Candlelight is an experience unlike any other, and you won’t want to miss out.
