Featured Candlelight Concerts
Johann Sebastian Bach is one of the most notable composers of the late Baroque period, who has influenced a huge number of other classical and contemporary artists; The Beatles being one of them. He particularly inspired the bass guitarist of the Fab Four, when the latter wrote the song “Blackbird”. Paul used the refrain of Bach’s “Bourrée” to create a metaphor for the difficult moments of the late 1960s in the US and the whole world.
However, it is said that George Martin, the producer of The Beatles’ original albums, often referred to as the “Fifth Beatle”, would also share classical music with the lads. So, it seems that the genre lived in the band’s veins. This season, catch a special tribute at Coastal Creative to Bach and The Beatles and hear Brandenburg Concerto no. 3 in G Major, BWV 1048: I. Allegro, as well as “I Want to Hold Your Hand”, “Yesterday”, “Blackbird” and “Come Together”, among others.
Swifties, escape into the twinkling world of Candlelight in one of St. Petersburg’s most iconic venues. The spacious and heavenly First Baptist Church will twinkle with the glow of thousands of candles that flicker and dance to Miss Americana’s most iconic tunes.
She’s one of the most beloved artists of our time, known for her catchy and upbeat melodies and her lyrics being a window into her personal life. For the first time in St. Petersburg, you’ll hear Taylor’s biggest hits from some of her most memorable eras, such as “Shake It Off”, “Lavender Haze” and “Love Story”, reimagined by the talented Listeso String Quartet.
