Portland Welcomes Classical Music Series ‘Candlelight’ for the First Time
Imagine classical versions of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" and Taylor Swift's "Anti-Hero", surrounded by candles.
Candlelight concerts are performed around the world every week. Amazing, classically-trained musicians perform all sorts of music in some of the world’s most unique and historic buildings, all lit by a sea of candles (they are LED). It's a tough combination to beat. And now, Portland, Maine, gets to experience Candlelight!
The candles flicker and cast light onto the walls, and people have reported that they seem to be dancing to the music. You'll hear some of your favorite songs in a way you've never heard them before.
Where in Portland is Candlelight?
There are three different concerts starting in October, and all of them will be played at the historic First Parish Universalist Church in Portland. It's the perfect setting. The Listeso String Quartet will take you through the three concerts.
