Calm your mind and experience jazz and classical music in a new light with these sensational concerts in some of Detroit’s most magical locations. Coming later this month, this concert series known simply as “Candlelight” invites everyone to relive the greatest works of jazz and classical music, from Miles Davis to Tchaikovsky in an intimate and unique atmosphere.
And after having enormous success around the world—in cities like Paris, Barcelona, and New York—the experience is finally here in Detroit, featuring the historic 100-year-old Masonic Temple and Saints Peter and Paul Jesuit Church, as well as the stunning Basilica Sainte Anne de Detroit.
The latter just became one of Candlelight’s most stunning venues, with its intimate spaces full of wonder. Founded in 1701, the Basilica stands as the second-oldest continuously operating Catholic parish in the United States. It is a vibrant, architecturally stunning space with a colorful history.
Some of these enchanting concerts will feature Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, the legendary Bach, and even a rendition of Taylor Swift’s hits, all played by the most talented jazz and classical musicians. With classics echoing through historic and elegant venues and countless flickering candles illuminating each unique space, the Detroit Candlelight concerts will present a collection of jazz and classical music over the course of 65 mesmerizing minutes.
The Candlelight series takes place twice each night with two back to back 60-65 minute performances. Doors will open 30 minutes prior to each show.
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
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!”
Candlelight is an experience unlike any other, and you won’t want to miss out.
