The evening programming features 16 different songs and the concert will last just over an hour. Photos and videos are only permitted during the last song so you can remember the eerie event.

Ticket prices begin at $30 per person and seating is assigned first come first served in each different zone. Other candlelit concert events that are coming up include From Bach to The Beatles and an ABBA tribute.
