There are few things that pull at the heartstrings with more power than live music in its purest form. Add to that the tender flicker of one hundred candles and the charm of a gorgeous venue, and you have an unrivaled recipe for romance.
The spellbinding Candlelight concert series returns this February with three romantic Valentine specials. Enjoy some of history’s greatest love songs played out masterfully in front of your eyes as the gentle flicker of flames dance around you and the strings soothe and swoon you.
Worry not: the candles are fireproof, so the only sparks flying will be the metaphorical ones between you and that special someone!
The Valentine’s Special on February 13 promises to be an intimate evening full of the greatest love songs of all time. From Tchaikovsky to Radiohead, the repertoire is sure to tug at your heart strings. Hosted at the BOK Auditorium, you’ll be delighted to see how the flickering glow of candles reflect off the Art Deco architecture.
If you’re looking for a show-stopping venue for the perfect Valentine’s concert date, look no further than a life-size reproduction of the Sistine Chapel! On Valentine’s Day, you can immerse yourself in Michelangelo’s masterpieces while a string quartet serenades you under candlelight. It’s the ultimate romantic experience!
Planning to celebrate this special holiday a little later in the week? You can enjoy a romantic Candlelight Jazz concert on February 17th or 24th that features some of Philly’s best jazz musicians playing romantic standards from Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole.
Philadelphia’s previous Candlelight performances have been wildly popular and often sell out quickly, so secure your Valentine’s Day plans now before it’s too late — Tickets are available for February 10 and February 11, so you can build up to Valentine’s Day with something unique.
