After enormous success around the world, Candlelight has come to light up the beautiful and culturally diverse Ottawa next. The Gladstone Theatre, First Baptist Church and Knox Church will host a series of concerts paying tribute to history’s most prominent performers and artists.
Expect to hear spellbinding renditions of Taylor Swift, Radiohead, ABBA, Queen, and many more, in Ottawa’s most breathtaking venues.
The Gladstone Theatre: The Home Of Independent Theatre
The Gladstone Theatre is a cultural hub in Ottawa, hosting a wide range of performances. Located in the trendy neighbourhood of Centretown, this historic landmark is known for its support of local artists and for showcasing works that explore social issues. So, where better to organise inspiring and life-enriching concerts, performed by amazingly gifted musicians than at the Gladstone Theatre?! The combination of lyrical music with hundreds of flickering candles lit in one of Ottawa’s best spaces, creates the perfect atmosphere for a relaxing night out.
First Baptist Church: An Acoustic Sanctuary
The First Baptist Church has a long and fascinating history, dating back to the mid-19th century. And the acoustics are out of this world! The church’s high ceilings and hard surfaces create a natural reverberation that enhances the quality and richness of the music. Add to that, a gorgeous illumination by hundreds of candles and you’ll get a sense of the tradition and legacy of the place, making the evening feel even more special.
Knox Church: An Impressive Gothic Revival Gem
This is another prime example of Ottawa’s amazing cultural spaces. Knox Church is a popular venue due to its exceptional acoustics and striking architecture. Its most interesting feature perhaps is the large pipe organ. It has over 3000 pipes and provides the most charming backdrop to orchestral performances. The church’s historic setting as it’s enveloped by candle glow also enhances the fantastical ambiance of classical music concerts.
Candlelight is a wonderful experience you can share with your loved ones. Whether it’s for date night, a night out with your besties, or your family, you definitely won’t be disappointed. It’s received amazing reviews, with guests calling it a “wonderful experience!” and “the atmosphere and music was mesmerising”.
