Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and More at Sanctuary Church in Birmingham
As the city adapts to the changes of spring, why not experience the seasons in a new light at an intimate Candlelight concert in Birmingham? Experience every wintry breeze, bird trill, thunderclap, and summer’s blazing heat while listening to renditions of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.
These awe-inspiring compositions will be accompanied by tributes to Astor Piazolla and Jules Massenet. Relax as the Listeso String Quartet serenades you with some of the greatest works of all time.
Classic Rock on Strings at The Masonic
Get ready for an epic night of classic rock’s greatest hits! From blues rock and hard rock to dance rock and new wave, the genre was made popular by radio stations in the 1980s to appeal to older audiences, but these artists and bands have continued to top the charts with their eternal melodies. You can catch reinterpreted songs by rock legends like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Guns n’ Roses, Led Zeppelin and Bon Jovi.
There won’t be any “sailors fighting in the dance hall”, but there will be a classical version of “Life On Mars?” performed by Listeso String Quartet at the jaw-droppingly exquisite Crystal Ballroom at The Masonic. The talented string quartet will also play renditions of Bon Jovi’s “Livin On A Prayer”, Cream’s “Sunshine Of You Love”, Blondie’s “Call Me”, and more.
A Tribute to Coldplay at Jam Handy
Candlelight is bringing to life the uplifting anthems of the British pop rock band Coldplay. With 7 Grammys under their belt and 100 million albums sold worldwide, there’s no doubt they’re not only topping the best selling artists list, but they’re also one of the most influential bands in the world.
This season, you can catch some of Coldplay’s biggest hits, old and new at the historic and multi-purpose Jam Handy. From “Clocks” to “A Sky Full Of Stars”, the venue will resonate with the band’s powerful melodies as the Listeso String Quartet takes to the stage. Add to that a gorgeous sea of flickering candles, and you’ve got a one-of-a-kind evening plan you won’t want to miss out on!
