Why should you attend a Candlelight concert? After enormous success in over 100 major cities around the world, Candlelight continues to illuminate Seattle with its signature sea of candles. The wildly popular concert series is known for its breathtaking venues, talented musicians, and diverse programs. Are you convinced yet? If not, read on to learn more about the reasons why you don’t want to miss out on this enchanting experience taking over the city.
1. The musicians
Works by timeless composers and modern-day icons are reimagined by talented musicians at these mesmerizing Candlelight concerts. Ranging from classically-trained string quartets and pianists to jazz bands and cantaores (flamenco singers), not only are these musicians extremely skilled, but they are also true professionals.
2. The atmosphere
One of the most significant factors involved in creating the perfect atmosphere for an intimate Candlelight concert includes finding a unique venue. These live music performances take place at some of the finest venues around the world, celebrated for their striking architecture, historical relevance, and more. Nothing compares to the sight of flickering candlelight bouncing off the walls of a storied cathedral, government building, or an industrial-style hotel.
3. Enchanting tributes to timeless composers
If you’re a fan of classical music, you’ll be glad to discover that many of these concerts feature tributes to famous composers. Vivaldi, Bach, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, and Ludovico Einaudi are some of the composers being honored by candlelight. Fall under the spell of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, attend a holiday special including performances of pieces from Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, and more unforgettable concerts guided by eternal compositions.
4. Not everything is classical music…
Although there is something nostalgic about hearing centuries-old works being brought to life at a Candlelight concert, music lovers can also enjoy concerts guided by more contemporary music. Whether you’re a fan of Taylor Swift’s chart-topping hits, Bad Bunny’s upbeat reggaeton, or Hans Zimmer’s legendary film scores, there’s something for everyone.
5. Stories that bring you closer to the music
And don’t worry, you won’t find yourself sitting there watching each song roll into the next. The musicians share anecdotes and interesting facts with audiences between each song. While it’s always a treat to hear renditions of popular music and undeniable classics, being given a little bit of context can prove even more conducive to fully appreciating the setlist.
6. Unbeatable ticket prices
Candlelight concerts are Fever’s original events. And the mission of Fever is to “democratize access to culture and entertainment.” You’ll notice when purchasing your tickets to one of these performances that there are several ticket options available at different prices. Naturally, the price depends on the seating and how close it is to the stage. You can catch a Candlelight tribute to Taylor Swift and more starting at around $25-$30.
7. Rave reviews from around the world
What’s more, the concert series has received rave reviews from attendees who have experienced the one-of-a-kind performances in Seattle.
