Candlelight: A Tribute to Ed Sheeran
Sheeran is known for his authenticity and relatability. He has been open and honest about his personal struggles and been a trailblazer in music, with his unique blend of pop, folk and hip hop influences, and has collaborated with a wide range of artists from different genres, breaking down barriers and pushing boundaries in the process.
This Candlelight concert was a wondrous occasion that imbued Ed Sheeran’s music with a new perspective, a novel take that transcended the conventional pop and folk genres. In the hands of classical musicians, his songs, including “The A Team”, “Shape Of You” and “Galway Girl”, were transformed into a sublime expression of the beauty and complexity of classical arrangements.
Following its enormous success around the world—in cities like London, Manchester, Madrid, Barcelona, and Paris—Candlelight brings its unique experience to NYC to pay tribute to some of the most popular musicians of our time.
This classical tribute was a celebration of Ed Sheeran’s impact and influence on the music industry. It showcased the enduring appeal and longevity of his music, so really we couldn’t think of a more deserving artist to pay homage to.
