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. Returning this summer, 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, will be making its way back to the city in 2021!
The concerts will feature Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, Beethoven’s Best Works, and Chopin’s Best Works, just to name a few, 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.
This season of the magical concert series begins with Mozart’s masterpieces at the gorgeous rooftop setting of JW Marriott Anaheim. Guests will hear incredible pieces like Eine Kleine Nachtmusik and Ave Verum Corpus performed by the Metropolis Chamber Musicians’ talented String quartet.
As June comes to a close, musicians will rock your world with a classical tribute to one of the world’s most iconic rock bands: Queen! Powerful anthems will fill the halls of the beautiful Immanuel Presbyterian Church (Wilshire) all summer.
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!”
Candlelight is an experience unlike any other, and you won’t want to miss out when it returns next year.
