Treat yourself to a new experience courtesy of the concert series simply known as “Candlelight“. You have (most likely) been to a concert of some kind before, but you’ve never been to a Candlelight concert, or at least you haven’t in Sheffield – yet. A Candlelight concert celebrates and brings to life the works of musical icons, beloved film scores, or even entire genres in only the most magical locations.
Candlelight is no newbie either. Candlelight has been running shows in London, Manchester, New York, Barcelona, and beyond for years. This November they are breaking new ground and taking over gorgeous venues across Sheffield to bring the experience that has wowed audiences globally just a little more local to you.
The first venue announced for Sheffield is Victoria Hall. The grade II listed building predates Sheffield City hall and has been a home for music since its inception. Whilst it still operates in its traditional function as a Methodist church it has opened up its doors to allow for a whole host of other uses. It is largely a space used by local charities, but it also plays home to the Sheffield Philharmonic Orchestra, and this November it is going to be the home of Sheffield’s Candlelight concerts.
The only announced concert so far is an incredible performance of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. Proceedings on the night will be led by the talented musicians that will be captivating audiences on the respective nights. With classics echoing through historic and elegant venues and countless flickering candles illuminating each unique space, the Sheffield Candlelight concerts will present a collection of classical music over the course of 65 mesmerizing minutes.
The Candlelight series takes place twice each night with two back to back 60-65 minute performances. Doors will open 30 minutes prior to each show.
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
