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 Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and some of Bollywood’s most iconic tunes. Immerse yourself in a classical performance bathed in the glow of hundreds of flickering candles as Candlelight kickstarts its season 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.
As the summer makes its way to Illinois, escape to the candlelit venue and rediscover classical compositions by timeless composers, including Vivaldi and Astor Piazzolla. Candlelight is combining the works of timeless composers and more contemporary legends for a unique musical experience. If you’re looking for something a bit more upbeat, go on a mesmerizing journey and relive the best of Hindi Geet, including “Jai Ho” from Slumdog Millionaire, “Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham” from Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (K3G), and more.
Candlelight concerts at New England Congreational 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 60-65 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.
