Candlelight concerts are entertaining thousands of people in cities across the world every week. Its winning combination of talented musicians performing a wide array of music programs in some of the world’s most unique and historic buildings illuminated by a sea of candles is hard to beat. And now, its glow is spreading to Columbia because everybody should be able to enjoy music in a new light.
What is Candlelight?
Candlelight is a series of concerts that are all performed by classically-trained musicians. Solo pianists, string quartets and other musical ensembles take to the stage to envelop and enchant audiences with a rich tapestry of sound all while hundreds—sometimes thousands—of LED candles flicker and twinkle and cast light onto the walls. It’s almost as if the flameless light magically dances to the notes being played.
Gone is the production element and from behind the studio effects, your favorite songs resound as you’ve never heard them before. It’s a sight and sound to behold, and one that you’ll want to experience again and again.
Columbia’s first Candlelight concerts
Columbia’s first Candlelight concerts are still a secret. But, we’ve got our ear to the ground and we’ve heard that the first performances will take place soon.
What we can also say is that you can expect a memorable night out made possible by eternal melodies, a glowing venue, and a plethora of candles that will create a dazzling atmosphere—all the elements you need to indulge yourself, a friend, or a loved one.
The wondrous spectacle is a spellbinding experience open to all music lovers. With multiple ticket types and affordable prices, Candlelight is the experience that affords all audiences the pleasure of listening to live music in a new setting.
Doors open 30-45 minutes before the concert start time to also allow audiences the opportunity to bask in the glow of candlelight and take in the atmosphere. Performances also generally take place two or three times per evening, allowing guests the opportunity to grab dinner before or after their concert.
