Candlelight concerts have invited us to relive the greatest works of classical music, from Vivaldi to Mozart to Bach, in an intimate atmosphere. We have experienced music in a new light at some of Singapore’s most stunning venues, including Victoria Concert Hall, CHIJMES Hall and the fantastic ballroom at the JW Marriott Hotel in South Beach plus many, many more.
The globally-renowned Candlelight series, which has wowed audiences across the US, UK, Europe and Australia, will be further enchanting the city with a range of concerts that’ll suit all musical tastes.

Two things are key to these mesmerising nights: candles and music. Every candlelight concert is lit by hundreds of flameless candles, transforming spectacular Singapore venues into dreamy atmospheric spaces. Add in some of the most talented musicians in Singapore, and a thoughtfully-considered program of music, and you’ve got the recipe for a truly unforgettable night.
Singapore’s first Candlelight concerts featured famous works of classical music. Don’t worry if you missed out because there are more on their way where you will be able to experience the compositions of master composers. But Candlelight has the offering with tribute concerts to some of jazz’s most celebrated artists, rock legends and soul queens as well as tributes to contemporary pop stars.
Their music has been reimagined for these stirring performances by string quartets, piano solos, duos and more, resulting in an entirely new way to enjoy your favourite musicians from home and around the world.
You will also be able to lose yourself in the flickering glow of flameless candles whilst the stirring melodies or rousing film scores from magical movies and anime films sound from the stage before you.
The concerts have proved immensely popular so far, with guests raving about “a creative, enchanting, and new concert experience” and that “the performers were fantastic!” Really, with all that to enjoy, you aren’t going to want to miss out on the ideal date night, cultural experience, or weekday treat.
The Candlelight concerts take place twice each night with two back-to-back 60-65 minute performances. Doors open 30 minutes prior to each show: Please arrive early or on time so as to not disturb the serene setting once the musicians begin.
Take a look at all the concerts below and grab your tickets for yourself, for a partner and for your friends.
Please note: For the safety of the performers and audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
