Coming this fall, the beloved concert series known simply as “Candlelight” invites everyone to relive the greatest musical works by top musicians in an incredibly unique atmosphere with hundreds of flickering candles.
Candlelight Concerts have had enormous success around the world—in cities like Paris, Barcelona, New York, and of course right here in Chicago at some of the city’s most breathtaking venues, including the grand former Masonic Temple Stan Mansion, the ornate Thalia Hall, and the architectural gem Salvage One. And now, suburbanites can rejoice because these magical concerts have made their way to Oak Park, and now Evanston!
With countless flickering candles illuminating the venue, the Evanston Candlelight concerts will present a collection of modern music over the course of 65 mesmerizing minutes.
If you’re looking for something extra special around Halloween, the Metropolis String Quartet will stun audiences at Candlelight: A Haunted Evening of Halloween Classics at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, performing various beloved spooky classics, such as “Nightmare Before Christmas,” “Thriller,” and “Hedwig’s Theme from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.”
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
These enchanting concerts will unveil musical delights bathed in the soft glow of candlelight for the first time at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church at the corner of Hinman and Lee in the vibrant town of Evanston, just five minutes from Northwestern University and thirty minutes north of downtown Chicago.
The Candlelight series takes place twice each night with two back-to-back 65 minute performances. Doors will open 45 minutes prior to each show.
The concerts have been met by countless 5-star reviews, and guests have called it “a creative, enchanting, and new concert experience” and that “the performers were fantastic!”
