With countless flickering candles illuminating each unique space, the Philadelphia Candlelight concerts will present a collection of classical music over the course of 65 mesmerizing minutes.
The Candlelight concerts are currently featuring two great classical rock themed concerts, including Rock on Strings and From Bach to the Beatles . Looking for a more modern pop sound? Candlelight is hosting a series of tributes to iconic pop artists, from ABBA and Lady Gaga to Taylor Swift and Coldplay. There’s even a special concert dedicated to anime theme songs!
If your musical tastes lean more towards jazz, there’s a Candlelight concert for you, too. The tribute to Amy Winehouse and Billie Holiday promises to be a soulful yet laidback evening of soothing jazz under candlelight. For Valentine’s Day, a special evening of romantic jazz is sure to create the most romantic of ambiances.
Candlelight has many holiday options planned as well, including two Valentine’s Day programs: one at the stunning BOK Auditorium and another at the new Sistine Chapel exhibit. And for Saint Patrick’s Day, you can listen to a night of festive Celtic music!
These majestic concerts will be performed inside two historic venues. The first, One North Broad Masonic Temple, is a stunning world-renowned architectural wonder. Built in 1873, this National Historic Landmark combines elements of medieval architectural styles to create one of the most visually elaborate and impressive buildings in Philadelphia. The second, BOK Auditorium, is an incredible Art Deco built in 1934 and occupying an entire city block! With detailed ornamentation highlighting the exquisite high-ceiling auditorium, the shimmer of candlelight will only make this venue even more magical.
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
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.
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!”
