Sydney’s Enchanting Candlelight Concerts Have Announced Special Jazz, Pop, Rock And More Tribute Shows For This Summer

Candlelight concerts have invited Sydneysiders to relive the greatest works of classical music, from Vivaldi to Mozart to Bach, in an intimate atmosphere and experience music in a new light at some of the city’s most stunning venues. They’ve been an enormous success and wowed audiences night after night.

But wait, because now there’s more than just classical music on offer.

If vintage classical music isn’t quite your jam, then no worries because the Candlelight series has upped the offering with tribute concerts to some of Jazz’s most celebrated artists like Frank Sinatra, Aretha Franklin, Miles Davis and Nina Simone among others.

There’s also a tribute to legendary band Queen while rumours circulate that there will also be tribute performances to French electronic music masters Daft Punk and The Beatles, too. The grapevine has also heard that even more Candlelight performances are in the pipeline for the King of Pop, ABBA and other iconic artists.

One living artist that is already cementing her place among the pantheon of greats is Taylor Swift. Love her or hate her, her popularity is undeniable and her songwriting talent is sneakily complex. She also gets a tribute concert basked in the glow of candles this summer.cellist performing at candlelight concert

Sydney’s first Candlelight concerts featured Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, Beethoven’s Best Works, and Chopin’s Best Works, all played by the most talented classical musicians.

Don’t worry if you missed out because there are still plenty of upcoming dates where you will be able to experience the compositions of these master composers. There are also dates set for tributes to the Italian maestro Ludovico Einaudi.

There are plenty more special and unique concerts by Candlelight coming up, including Candlelight folk songs and ballet performances, which should definitely not be missed.

The concerts, which have taken place at venues like The Mint, Linseed House, St Stephen’s Uniting Church and Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace as well as the Australian National Maritime Museum, have been met with countless 5-star reviews. Guests have said that the evenings are “a creative, enchanting, and new concert experience” and that “the performers were fantastic!”

The Candlelight concerts take place twice each night with two back-to-back 60-65 minute performances. Doors open 30 minutes prior to each show and no late entry is permitted so as to not disturb the serene setting created inside.

Take a look at all the concerts below and grab your tickets before somebody else does.

Please note: For the safety of the performers and audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
