Vienna Light Orchestra: A Tribute to The Greatest Showman and More!

April 15, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Experience A Beautiful Orchestral Concert By Vienna Light Orchestra Here In Charlotte, NC!

*The Vienna Light Orchestra has SOLD OUT their last 26 performances. Grab your tickets early and don’t miss this magical show!*

With over two thousand flickering candles illuminating the performers – The Vienna Light Orchestra’s world class musicians, from 7 different countries — will be paying tribute to the powerful music of THE GREATEST SHOWMAN and SO MUCH more. 

The powerful music from the cinema sensation — THE GREATEST SHOWMAN, and some of the worlds most beloved classics like, O Mio Bambino, Adagio for Strings, Danny Boy and Somewhere, this is an evening at the Theatre you and your family will not soon forget.  Whether you’re looking for a beautiful and unique event, or an evening with the mesmerizing music of “The Greatest Showman” bathed in over 2,000 candles, this show is for you. 

The original cinematic musical released in 2017 is based on the story and life of P.T. Barnum who was a famous Showman and entertainer.  The unforgettable music centers around his creation of the Barnum & Bailey Circus and of course—the lives of its star attractions. 

The Vienna Light Orchestra’s awe inspiring performance with singers and world class orchestral soloists is a positive interruption from the noise of the world — while elevating audiences into an atmosphere of inspirational, motivational music.  In the same way Barnum and those in the circus stayed focused and embraced who they were—they disregarded the negativity around them through the magical message of —“all things being possible to those who believe.”

Audiences have loved the GREATEST SHOWMAN because it is a classic rags to riches story which is now one of the most successful musicals of all time!  “Ladies and Gents—this is what you’ve waited for.” — P.T. Barnum

Held in specially selected venues in comfortable idyllic settings so you can escape with inspirational music in a relaxed but awe inspiring atmosphere bathed by the flicker of over two thousand candlelights. Prepare to soar into the clouds! This concert series is coming to the Dale F. Halton Theater, a venue of purpose and elegance located in the heart of Downtown Charlotte, NC.

VLO features world-class orchestral musicians and singers from seven different countries and takes its name from what is often heralded as the “capital of orchestral music.” You don’t have to know everything about the genre of orchestral music to discover the joys of immersing yourself in the dramatic symphonic sounds of The Vienna Light Orchestra!

Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight ambiance is provided through flameless, LED unscented candles.

“Every concert is a delightful experience, and I believe there is no greater enjoyment than the freedom of expression for a musician and audience. The Vienna Light Orchestra was created as a way to illuminate the world of orchestral music in a new light. You know how some people are so intimidated by orchestral music that they stay away? With us, things are different. The VLO has youthful, excited musicians who perform from their hearts — and touch hearts, every evening. You’ll see us having fun with the audience…clapping, laughing and swaying with songs that are filled with so much joy.” The Director

From the Founder & Producer of Vienna Light Orchestra

“When I was a teenager I wrote a song called Eternal Love. I was spellbound by the sweeping melodies that came flooding through the piano which has become the rhythm of my life. Today, I’m thrilled to bring a lot of the worlds most beloved music to audiences everywhere. My dream is to help make the entirety of orchestral music enjoyable, fresh and delightful for everyone!”
