Candlelight is spreading its love of live music in unique and historic venues to new audiences. The broad music selection, from classical greats to contemporary icons, combined with the atmosphere created by its trademark sea of candles is hard to beat, which is why the city’s first Candlelight concerts have all sold out.
However, there is no need to worry if you missed out or if you already want to buy more tickets because Candlelight has announced a new set of dates. And, tickets are already on sale.
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 favourite 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.
