Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
Boston’s Candlelight concert series will take place at two historic venues in Boston. The first venue is the Temple Ohabei Shalom in Brookline, built in 1925 and modelled on the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul that was built in the 6th century. Home to the oldest Hebrew congregation in Massachusetts, the architecture is built in a lavish Byzantine-era style, with a massive gold dome-ceiling and elaborate stained glass windows.
The second venue, which will host the later concerts in November, is the Arlington Street Church, a historic Unitarian Universalist church in the Back Bay. The building, constructed between 1859 and 1861, is an architectural treasure. It was designed by the Boston architect Arthur Gilman and modeled on the church of St. Martin in the Fields in London, with architectural references to the Italian Renaissance and 18th century England. Visitors to the church and concert series will be able to view its historic Tiffany windows, believed to be the largest collection of Tiffany windows in any single church.
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.
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.
