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.

Looking for a more modern pop sound? Candlelight is hosting a series of tributes to pop artist Taylor Swift. There’s even a special concert dedicated to soul and R&B legends from Smokey Robinson and Otis Redding to Aaliyah and Maxwell with Soul and the Sea at Adventure Aquarium! This unforgettable event will be at the sensational Currents Ballroom at Adventure Aquarium.
These majestic concerts will be performed inside 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!”
