The beloved concert series known simply as “Candlelight” invites everyone to relive the greatest works by top musicians in an incredibly unique atmosphere with hundreds of flickering candles. If you have yet to experience a Candlelight concert for yourself, now is the time to get your tickets.
Candlelight has had enormous success around the world—in cities like Paris, Barcelona, New York, and Chicago—at breathtaking venues around the world. And you can experience these magical concerts at two stunning locations in Grand Rapids.
Candlelight Concerts at Fountain Street Church
At Fountain Street Church, candlelit concerts will unveil musical delights bathed in the soft glow of candlelight. Initially founded in 1869, this stunning venue is exquisite and features wood carvings, stonework, and intricate mosaics; and is a spectacular space for an enchanting night out surrounded by candlelight.
Valentine’s Day Special
If you can’t celebrate Cupid’s day on a Tuesday this year, why not treat your Valentine to a Candlelight concert a few days before? On February 10, Fountain Street Church will provide the perfect setting for a romantic evening listening to love songs featured in movies like Romeo & Juliet and Titanic.
Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and More
Candlelight concerts are set to pay homage to great works of classical music on March 25 and May 13. If you love nothing more than the soothing sound of a string quartet, then you will be blown away by Listeso’s tribute to Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. Take a journey with some of the most significant musical notes capturing the true force of each season.
A Tribute to Taylor Swift
Some fan favorites from Miss Americana’s music catalog are to be recreated by KalHaven Strings on April 29. While listening to Love Story or Anti-Hero, follow Taylor Swift’s evolution from a small-town country girl into an international pop sensation.
Candlelight Concerts at The Lit
As well as some spellbinding performances at Fountain Street Church, Candlelight performances will be held at The Lit—a breathtaking venue dating back to the late 19th Century. Initially, this charming building served as the setting for a small history class set up by a group of women. It was later transformed into a clubhouse for The Ladies’ Literary Club. Today, The Lit is a popular location for weddings, corporate events, and now Candlelight concerts!
Candlelight: Romantic Jazz
On Valentine’s Day, immerse yourself in an intimate concert featuring the works of artists like Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, and Frank Sinatra. Admire the original stained glass Tiffany window as you walk through the lobby in The Lit. Everything you see in its elegant interior is conducive to a memorable night of romantic jazz surrounded by flickering candles.
A Tribute to Queen
On March 24, KalHaven Strings takes to the stage to honor the world-famous rock band. If you love the catchy beat of Another One Bites the Dust or the heartbreaking plea of Bohemian Rhapsody, you will fall under Queen’s spell again at a candlelit concert.
The Candlelight series takes place twice each night with two back-to-back 60-65-minute performances. Doors will open 45 minutes prior to each show.
The concerts have been met by countless 5-star reviews, and guests have called it “a creative, enchanting, and new concert experience” and that “the performers were fantastic!”
Candlelight is an experience unlike any other, and you won’t want to miss out. Buy tickets now to secure your seat at one of these intimate concerts here.
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
