Sydney’s Candlelight concerts have honoured classical music greats as well as modern popstars. Some have even combined the two for absolutely thrilling performances. But, one of the prevailing favourites of the series remains Candlelight Jazz—a selection of candlelit concerts that just hit different.
Unlike the traditional Candlelight concerts that feature classically-trained musicians wowing audiences with their skilled musical precision, Candlelight Jazz performances feature jazz bands. Very good jazz bands that sweep you up in the magic of the illuminated evening and recreate the feel of a low-lit jazz club.
