From tributes to renowned classical composers, to reimaginings of Queen and The Beatles, concerts illuminated by candlelight will take place at some of the city's most beloved historic landmarks
Raleigh, June 1 - Fever, the leading global live-entertainment discovery platform, is bringing its internationally celebrated Candlelight experience to Raleigh for the first time this summer. Beginning this month, the concerts will feature enchanting renditions of classics such as “Vivaldi’s Four Seasons,” to “Songs from Magical Movie Soundtracks,” “A Tribute to Taylor Swift” and much more, performed by talented local string quartets and ensembles at two of the city’s most picturesque and architectural treasures- The Merrimon-Wynne House and All Saints Chapel.
Candlelight aims to democratize access to culture and create an accessible and ambient space to enjoy the works of the greatest classical composers such as Vivaldi, Mozart and Beethoven, as well as modern compositions and tributes to the likes of the Queen, ABBA, and popular movie soundtracks. Known for performances in unique venues worldwide, from churches to libraries to mansions and more, these shows leave their usual context -concert halls- to immerse themselves in the most magical places of the cities through which they pass. Raleigh will be no exception with performances taking place at The Merrimon-Wynne House and All Saints Chapel, two of the city's most beloved historical landmarks, which will be transformed into a concert venue, bathed in the gentle glow of thousands of candles creating a serene atmosphere that enhances the listening experience.
This Fever Original concept has succeeded in bringing classical music to a whole new audience, with 70% of participants under the age of 40 in over 90 cities and with over 3M tickets sold worldwide in 2021 alone. With Candlelight, Fever creates events to cultivate the city's most unique venues and celebrate the world’s greatest composers and local musicians, while making culture accessible to people who wouldn’t normally have access to the genre.
