Listening to classical music by candlelight in a beautiful setting sounds like the peaceful haven we all need.
Calm your mind and experience classical music in a new light with these sensational concerts in some of L.A.’s most magical locations, from historic cathedrals to glowing rooftops. The concert series known simply as “Candlelight” invites everyone to relive the greatest works of classical music, from Vivaldi to Mozart to Bach, in an intimate atmosphere.
And after having enormous success around the world—in cities like Paris, Barcelona, and even right here in L.A.—the experience, while being temporarily put on pause for 2020, has made its way back to the city.
The concerts will feature dazzling, thematic musical performances all played by the most talented classical musicians. With countless flickering candles illuminating each unique space, the L.A. Candlelight concerts will present a collection of classical music over the course of 65 mesmerizing minutes.
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
September will see an incredible showcase of anime themes and video game soundtracks played at the historic Immanuel Presbyterian Church by the String Quintet (Metropolis Chamber Musicians).
In October, music fans will be taken on a journey through the ages with From Bach to the Beatles, where you’ll hear the majestic sounds like Bach’s Tocatta and Fugue in D minor and the iconic hits like the All You Need is Love by the Beatles.
Allow haunting Halloween compositions to carry you into the spooky season. Then, as we move deeper into the fall season, the smooth, timeless notes of female jazz legends Aretha, Nina, and The Divas of Soul will fill the evening air as glimmering candlelight illuminates your surroundings.
The Candlelight series takes place twice each evening with two back to back 60-65 minute performances. Doors open 30 minutes prior to each show.
And of course, Candlelight will always follow the government guidelines for safety measures, and the events will always operate at safe capacities set out by law. Additional safety measures are added to all concerts and will be sent to all who have purchased tickets.
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!”
