The sight of twinkling lights, the sound of cheery music, the smell of gingerbread cookies and pine trees, and sitting across a cozy fireplace by the living room are some of the signs that Christmas is around the corner. And what better way to start the holiday season than with an enchanting musical experience.
Since arriving in major cities, Candlelight has offered unforgettable memories to those who’ve attended their more classical concerts. And once again, it welcomes you to the merriest time with some of your favorite Christmas carols, hundreds of sparkling lights, and exclusive cozy venues that’ll sweep you off your feet, making this holiday season a unique one.
If these reasons are still not enough for you –don’t worry!– We have a thousand more, but we’ve laid out our top 5 reasons why you should greet this holiday season with a Candlelight concert that are more than enough.
1. Holidays Favorites
If there’s something that will take us back to that early Christmas morning when we were kids, it’s the merry music our parents used to play around the house. And if there’s something that Candlelight knows how to do best, it’s a Christmas medley that’ll take you right back to those mornings.
From holiday classics like Deck The Halls and The First Nöel to the more intricate ones like The Nutcracker and O Holy Night, skilled musicians will have you lifting your hands in awe and making your skin tickle with joy. While the music enchants your ears and fills the venue with magical sounds you’ll wish the night to last forever.
2. Exclusive Venues
Ever wondered how you could get around places often closed to the public off hours? If your answer is YES! Then, you’ve come to the right place. Candlelight’s list of intimate venues keeps growing with other-worldly places that’ll make you feel right in Santa’s North Pole house.
But if you’re more into down-to-earth venues –we got you!– because you’ll be able to Deck the Halls at the historically rich St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church while you’re surrounded by its Bolton stained glass windows and Gothic Revival aesthetic.
3. Cozy Ambience
Remember the cozy fireplace and gingerbread cookies we mentioned earlier? Well, there’s no doubt that the holiday season is synonymous with coziness. And there’s nothing cozier to do this season than to enjoy live music in a warm, dimly-lit relaxing venue.
Just imagine a string quartet threading together, note by note, a melody that engulfs your senses as you sit in a majestic place in your best outfit. All while hundreds of sparkling lights surround you, and your favorite people, in a tight embrace that’ll make this experience a true Christmas miracle.
When Candlelight says candles, they deliver. And we’re not talking about 20 to 50 candles but hundreds, sometimes even thousands, all over the venue. Every single one perfectly aligned around the musicians to create an ever-glowing stage, as each music note sways around their flame. The perfect way to set a seasonal atmosphere.
5. Give The Gift Of Experience
What’s this Holiday season for than to give back to those we love? Treat the ones you cherish the most to a priceless gift this year: the gift of experience. Let them enjoy some of this season’s cheer with Candlelight’s Gift Card. It’s a Christmas gift all packed in one!
But if your loved ones prefer other genres, Candlelight offers more than just Christmas medleys. They’ll also be able to relive some of classical music’s greatest works, from Vivaldi to Bach, or pay tribute to jazz greats, rock legends, and pop superstars—past and present— all in this ambitious musical experience. Choosing which to attend won’t be an easy task.
