New immersive concerts in Fort Worth take place by flickering candlelight
A unique concert series that takes place by flickering candlelight is coming to Fort Worth: Called Candlelight Concerts, it features live music performed by local musicians, but illuminated by thousands of candles — allowing attendees to enjoy the music of classical composers and others in an intimate, breathtaking setting.
The series includes a trio of concerts taking place at Downtown Cowtown at the Isis, as follows:
- September 13: A Tribute to Taylor Swift
- October 18: A Haunted Evening of Halloween Classics
- December 13: Vivaldi’s Four Seasons & More
All concerts will feature a performance by the Listeso String Quartet.
According to a release, the series is from an entertainment company called Fever, which was founded in 2011 in Valencia, Spain, and has more recently expanded to the U.S. They've staged events in more than 100 cities worldwide.
The candles are thought to create an immersive experience that focuses on the music and connects audiences in a more meaningful way. The company's mission is to democratize access to culture and entertainment, with everything from immersive exhibitions to interactive theatrical experiences to festivals to molecular cocktail pop-ups, making it relevant to all, and not just the conventional "classical music" crowd.
They initially conceived Candlelight as a classical music series, featuring composers such as Vivaldi, Mozart, and Chopin. But they've expanded their programming into other themes and genres, including tributes to contemporary artists like Queen, ABBA, Coldplay, and Ed Sheeran, as well as shows dedicated to K-Pop, movie soundtracks and more.
This multi-sensory experience has also evolved to feature different elements, such as ballet dancers or aerial performers, as well as other genres, such as jazz, soul, opera, and flamenco.
Tickets for the Fort Worth concerts range from $34-$62, are now on sale at feverup.com/en/fort-worth/candlelight.
