The Candlelight series is coming to several spectacular venues across The Golden City this season. Get ready for hundreds of flickering candles, talented musicians, and an unforgetable ambience to be created in some of San Francisco’s most treasured and historic spaces. Listen to your favorite modern-day hits in the classical form or revisit timeless compositions by geniuses such as Vivaldi.
This year’s lineup of Candlelight concerts will take place at the International Art Museum of America, St. Ignatius Church, Great Star Theater, and the iconic Chabot Space and Science Center. With a variety of breathtaking venues and diverse performances to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect live music experience in San Francisco.
You’ll find this international museum in the heart of downtown San Francisco. Not government-subsidized, it is a non-profit museum housing various fascinating exhibits by national, European, and Asian artists. Appreciate art from the 17th century to more modern works including that of Rosa Bonheur, George Romney, and H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. Where better to listen to candlelit classical performances than surrounded by centuries of art and culture?
St. Ignatius Church is a striking architectural and spiritual landmark. Completed in 1914, the church is a testament to Gothic Revival style, characterized by its awe-inspiring facade adorned with intricate details and majestic spires. Operated by the Jesuits, St. Ignatius Church serves as the university church for the nearby University of San Francisco, featuring stunning stained glass windows, ornate woodwork, and a sense of solemnity.
Picture yourself surrounded by the romantic glow of candlelight, art, history, or science at an intimate concert in San Francisco. The venues hosting the Candlelight series each possess their own unique charm and blend perfectly with the soothing music.
