A night of candid candlelit jazz in the midst of 2020’s mania is the easing experience we’ve all been waiting for.

Kick back and absorb the atmosphere as renowned jazz musicians inspire your mind, body, and soul this winter.

A limited number of people are invited to each candlelight concert making each and every event an incomparably intimate experience.

Countless flickering candles illuminate the stage and encircle the talented performers as jazz fills your ears and eases your mind. 65 mesmerizing minutes fly by as timeless masterpieces are masterfully played out before your very eyes in unique performances that allow you to experience live jazz in a whole new light. Buy tickets for Chicago Candlelight concerts here.

Some of this summer’s Chicago Candlelight concerts will include a Tribute to Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone and the Divas of Soul and Chicago Soul Spectacular performing Marvin Gaye, Duke Ellington, and Billie Holiday as part of their Jazz and the Black Experience open-air concert.

Aretha Franklin was one of the greatest American artists of all time. So much so she rightfully earned the nickname the ‘Queen of Soul’ thanks to her multi-octave voice that moved millions around the world for several decades and continues to do so to this day. 

Nina Simone also goes down in history as one of the twentieth century’s most extraordinary characters. She also had her own moniker as ‘High Priestess of Soul’ and was both a consummate musical storyteller and a champion of liberation, empowerment, and love.

Capacity at candlelight events has been expanded but is still limited to ensure seats are at least 6 ft away from all other groups for everybody’s safety. In addition to a limited capacity, masks will be required at all times unless eating or drinking and, in some cases, temperature checks will be carried out upon arrival

The Candlelight series has been met by countless 5-star reviews around the world, and guests have called it “a creative, enchanting, and innovative concert experience” and that “the performers were fantastic!”

Candlelight is an experience unlike any other, and you won’t want to miss out. Buy tickets for Chicago Candlelight here and secure your seat at one of these rhythmic ragtime events.
