From barking dogs to summer storms, icy winters and birds chirping in spring, Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons is one of history’s greatest “program music” compositions.
Best known for his four-part masterpiece, it describes landscapes and scenes, evokes feelings and emotions and brings forth memories without the need for words. You know it without knowing you know it and it never tires, gets old or ceases to amaze.

What is Candlelight?
Candlelight is a series of concerts that are all performed by classically-trained musicians. Solo pianists, string quartets and other musical ensembles take to the stage to envelop and enchant audiences with a rich tapestry of sound all while hundreds—sometimes thousands—of LED candles flicker and twinkle and cast light onto the walls. It’s almost as if the flameless light magically dances to the notes being played.
Gone is the production element and from behind the studio effects, your favorite songs resound as you’ve never heard them before. It’s a sight and sound to behold, and one that you’ll want to experience again and again.
