With each performance including top-notch venues, incredible atmosphere and the highest calibre of musicians, other classical concerts couldn’t hold a candle to them! Candlelight is all about promoting and supporting professional musicians, and spreading the love for classical music, so here are 7 reasons why you should attend a Candlelight concert.
1. The musicians
Candlelight offers guests the opportunity to listen to professional musicians that have been handpicked for each candlelight event. Whether you enjoy the grandeur of a full orchestra, the synchronicity of a string quartet, or the intimacy of a solo pianist, Candlelight events offer you the opportunity to experience them all and more.
2. The atmosphere
A lot of care and consideration goes into picking the Candlelight venues, as the goal is to create an atmosphere that transports the audience into a world of beauty and wonder. As guests enter a Candlelight concert, they will be greeted by the glow of hundreds of flickering candles dancing around the venue. The warm light creates an enchanting atmosphere that enhances the musical experience. In this intimate environment, every note, every pause, and every breath of the music becomes heightened, allowing the audience to fully immerse themselves in the performance.
3. Variety of musical genres
Whether you are a fan of anime soundtracks, classic rock, or contemporary musicians you’ll find a concert that suits your preferences. From tributes to contemporary pop stars like Taylor Swift and Adele to iconic 80s bands like ABBA and Queen, Candlelight concerts cover a wide range of genres and eras. This diversity ensures that there is always something new and exciting to discover, expanding your musical horizons.
4. Close interactions with musicians
Besides just being able to enjoy the incredible music, you will also be able to hear inside knowledge from the performers and learn a bit more about the artist or band whose music is being performed. Often, the musicians take the opportunity to share anecdotes, stories and extra information, allowing the audience to connect more deeply with the music and the artists.
5. Hear music by classical greats
When Candlelight first began its journey, its core mission was to make classical music accessible to a wide range of people, regardless of their background or previous exposure to the genre. One of the ways it achieves this goal is through regular tribute concerts to renowned classical composers like Vivaldi, Bach and Mozart. By featuring these iconic composers, audiences have the opportunity to experience the timeless beauty and brilliance of their musical masterpieces.
6. The ticket price
In keeping with the Candlelight mission of making classical music accessible to all people, this includes the tickets as well. This is why keeping the ticket prices as reasonable as possible is such an important part of the experience. Most concerts start at around $30 and have a variety of ticket options to choose from.
