Candlelight concerts have been dazzling audiences worldwide in cities such as London and Paris, and even illuminating spectacular venues forty miles west, in Chicago. This season, the Candlelight series invites everyone to experience some of the greatest music of all time like never before at an intimate concert in Aurora.
New England Congregational Church is set to host one-of-a-kind concerts celebrating some of music’s most iconic songs, from classical masters to contemporary stars—no genre or age goes missing. Immerse yourself in a classical performance bathed in the glow of thousands of flickering candles in Aurora.
Candlelight at New England Congregational Church
The First Congregational Church was organized in 1838, and three years later one of the first church buildings was built in Aurora. New England Congregational Church has lived through The Civil War, The Great Chicago Fire, World War I, and celebrated its 150th sesquicentennial anniversary in 2008. Step into the Richardsonian Romanesque-style church and be amazed by the round-arched windows, rough-faced stone arches, and Tiffany rose window donated by Hedley Jobbins.
Escape to the candlelit venue and rediscover classical compositions by timeless composers, including Vivaldi and Astor Piazzolla or see how Candlelight combines timeless composers with more contemporary legends for a unique musical experience.
Candlelight concerts at New England Congregational Church take some of the greatest works of music to new heights. Sit in a welcoming environment bathed in the glow of candles, and relax whilst the talented musicians serenade you with unforgettable renditions of familiar compositions.
The Candlelight series takes place twice each evening with two back-to-back 60-minute performances. Doors open at least 45 minutes prior to each show.
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
