Concerts by Candlelight have invited all of Perth to relive the greatest works of classical music, from Vivaldi to Mozart to Bach, in an intimate atmosphere and experience music in a new light at some of the city’s most stunning venues.
They have wowed audiences but now Candlelight has cracked open even more performances and there are more than just tributes to classical music greats.
If classical music isn’t quite your jam, then no worries because the Candlelight series has upped its musical offering with tribute concerts. While we’ve had performances celebrating some of jazz’s most influential artists like Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles and Nat King Cole, we can now sit in awe and appreciation of Frank Sinatra.
However, Candlelight has also turned its attention to legendary bands such as Queen and The Beatles as well as one of the best-selling bands of the past two decades in Coldplay.
Pop tributes are also on the cards with Taylor Swift and Adele also getting the Candlelight treatment in Perth, where fans of the singer-songwriters will get to experience their music as played by a string quartet or a piano-cello duo.
Perth’s first Candlelight concerts featured the scores of some of classical music’s most revered composers, all played by the most talented classical musicians.
Don’t worry if you missed out because we’re sure to see more of Beethoven, Vivaldi and others soon enough. Just the same, we’re also looking forward to hearing more of Italian maestro Ludovico Einaudi, which was an incredible experience.
The concerts, which have taken place at venues like Winthrop Hall, the Octagon and Dolphin theatres and the Perth Town Hall, have been met with countless 5-star reviews. Guests have said that the evenings are “a creative, enchanting, and new concert experience” and that “the performers were fantastic!”
The Candlelight series takes place twice each night with two back-to-back 60-65 minute performances. Doors open 30 minutes prior to each show and no late entry is permitted so as to not disturb the serene setting inside.
Take a look at all the concerts below and grab your tickets before somebody else does.
Please note: For the safety of performers and the audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
