Candlelight concerts continue to illuminate cities around the world, including this historic city. And if you have yet to experience one or need a little more convincing, read on to discover 7 undeniable reasons why you need to attend a Candlelight show in Bendigo this season.
1. The musicians
Whether it’s a skilled pianist, jazz trio, string quartet, or saxophonist, the musicians performing at Candlelight concerts leave audiences mesmerised. What’s more, these talented performers are sometimes accompanied by ballet dancers, aerialists, and more depending on the type of tribute concert.
2. A unique atmosphere
The Candlelight series prides itself on seeking out venues that are celebrated for their architecture, history, and purpose, and sometimes for a combination of the three. Previous concerts have taken place at the likes of famous landmarks, historic mansions, and five-star hotels. Mixed with the flicker of candles and soothing melodies, nothing compares to the atmosphere created at these captivating performances.
3. Tributes to timeless composers
Fans of classical music can turn to Candlelight for concerts guided by some of the greatest compositions of all time. From Vivaldi to Tchaikovsky and Beethoven, the concert series celebrates the form guided by masters of their craft. What’s more, the use of candles is a subtle nod to the way concerts were performed in the past, as many iconic composers would have found themselves relying on solely candlelight during live performances. Embrace tradition in Bendigo.
4. And takes on more contemporary music…
Candlelight also welcomes music fans to rediscover everything from pop hits to legendary rock songs in a new light. Tributes to the likes of Queen and Coldplay provide a terrific opportunity to explore new sides of some of your favourite artists. Film scores and soundtracks, Taylor Swift’s chart-topping hits, jazz classics, and neo-soul favourites are included in Candlelight’s wide-ranging repertoire.
5. Bringing you closer to the music
Context also plays a role during Candlelight performances as musicians don’t simply play continuously. They use intervals to share a short anecdote or interesting fact about the piece, song, or artist being celebrated. Not only will you leave having appreciated a music legend, but you might also find yourself with a fascinating story to share at your next dinner party.
6. Unbeatable ticket prices
When you go to purchase your tickets to a Candlelight performance, you’ll see a number of seating options available depending on the seats remaining and how close you want to sit to the stage. This allows you to secure your tickets at different prices. For example, you can book your seat at a tribute honoring Coldplay and Imagine Dragons for around $30.
