The name ‘Candlelight’ immediately hints at something love-themed or romance-related. Some candles generally accompany any date or proposal seen in a romcom, and real life. Aside from the obvious, there are plenty of reasons why a concert bathed in the glow of candlelight is the ultimate romantic plan to rely on for a one-of-a-kind way to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year.
1. Candles are powerful moodsetters
Coupled with the flattering lighting that comes with candles, the power of the wick should not be underestimated. With pupils dilating in the low light and hands behind held in the flickering glow, embrace the incomparable ambience at a Candlelight concert while listening to some of your favourite music.
2. A unique live music experience
Instead of your typical concert, a Candlelight performance features thousands of candles and illuminates some of the finest venues, from cathedrals to historic performing arts theatres. And the case is no different when it comes to shows in Melbourne. Appreciate the city’s breathtaking spaces while unwind in a relaxing atmosphere. What’s more, a Candlelight concert makes for the perfect pre or post-dinner plan.
3. The body’s response to music genres
Even if you and your significant other don’t consider yourselves to exactly be classical music fanatics, you might be tempted to experience the calming effects induced by pieces from the genre. Although some Candlelight concerts feature jazz bands and vocalists performing renditions of contemporary music, a lot of the shows are performed in the classical form. Listening to every soothing note and moving melody will not only bring you closer to your Valentine but also bring you harmony.
