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 programmes in some of the world’s most unique and historic buildings illuminated by a sea of candles is hard to beat.

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.
