Starting this June, the beloved concert series known simply as “Candlelight” invites everyone to relive the greatest modern works by top musicians in an incredibly unique atmosphere with hundreds of flickering candles.
Candlelight Concerts have had enormous success around the world—in cities like Paris, Barcelona, New York, and of course, right here in Seattle at some of the city’s most breathtaking venues, including Sparkman Cellars and AXIS Pioneer Square. And now, music lovers can rejoice because these magical concerts are coming to the gorgeous Sanctuary Grand Ballroom in the Lotte Hotel!
For a truly unforgettable night, you won’t want to miss these upcoming concerts, including tributes to brilliant musicians such as Taylor Swift, ABBA, and Coldplay, at The Sanctuary Grand Ballroom of the Lotte Hotel.
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
The concerts will take place in The Sanctuary Grand Ballroom of the Lotte Hotel, a stunning 5,628-square foot venue with a storied history. It is in the oldest Beaux-Arts style building downtown, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, and the venue sits in what was at one time the oldest church in the city.
The stunning 1908 venue recently underwent a $40 million restoration to preserve such details as the exquisitely carved woodwork, terra cotta moldings, breathtakingly beautiful stained glass windows, and the pipe organ which takes over an entire wall. The venue will undoubtedly look even more exquisite, bathed in the flickering glow of hundreds of candles and the soothing sound of a string quartet.
The Candlelight series takes place twice each night with two back-to-back 60-minute performances. Doors will open an hour prior to each show.
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!”
