Candlelight Venues in NYC
Church of the Heavenly Rest
Originally located in Midtown, the Church of the Heavenly Rest moved to the site of its architecturally marvelous home opposite Central Park on the Upper East Side in 1929. The towering church features pointed arches, vaulted ceilings decorated with stars and stained-glass windows that are all the more stunning when lit up with the light of hundreds of candles.
The Williamsburg Hotel
Surrounded by hip bars, swanky restaurants and classy galleries, The Williamsburg Hotel is all style and elegance. It’s no wonder why it’s oft-described as the chicest hotel in the neighborhood. But, you don’t need to stay the night to take advantage of the glamor the hotel affords its guests.
Although constructed in the late 1800s, a five-year renovation project saw the Williamsburg Opera House return to its historic best. Featuring ornate architecture, beautiful carvings and stunning chandeliers, the venue transforms every event into a grand occasion. And, its acoustics are sensational, leaving nothing to be desired.
The Sheen Center
Situated on historic Bleecker Street, The Sheen Center for Thought and Culture has hosted countless cultural events, including movie premieres, concerts. The venue’s history is quite fascinating. The building originally served as a parish for Italian immigrants, founded by two Jesuit priests. In the late ’20s, a school was built, which included an auditorium with a professional stage that would present full-scale operas annually. Following the results of the Great Depression, the church was converted into a residence and employment center for homeless men.
It wasn’t until 2015 that The Sheen Center would finally open its doors for artists in the likes of Norah Jones, Vanessa Williams, Kristin Chenowith and James Taylor. Today, it serves as a space where art and spirituality meet, which makes it an ideal location for enchanting and heavenly classical concerts under candlelight.
St. Ann and the Holy Trinity Church
St. Ann and the Holy Trinity Church is no small building and was once the most visible landmark in all of Brooklyn, its spire was used by ship captains to sail into New York harbor. The nave of the church is 145 feet long and 42 feet wide, and the ceiling, an intricate fan-vaulted design, stands 63 feet high dwarfing those seated in the pews. The colored and textured interior walls will be aglow for Candlelight concerts over the coming months.
This theater company began in 1983 and has since endeavored to support “playwrights in residence”, focus on improvisation, bring programs to public and private schools, and so much more. Finding its official home in Brooklyn in 2008, The Space at Irondale “exists at the intersection of art”. This year, Candlelight concerts will be bringing breathtaking live performances to the beloved theater.
The sights and sounds of flamenco are coming to Irondale to delight and amaze NYC audiences. You won’t want to miss passionate tributes to Paco Peña, Isaac Albeniz, Georges Bizet, and more.
Whether you’re looking for a beautifully unique classical or jazz performance or a romantic, candlelit experience, these concerts will fit the bill. And you don’t even need to be a music connoisseur to enjoy the experience (though of course, that is welcome as well).
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
