Fall under the enchanting spell of takes on carol and pieces by Debussy and Tchaikovksy at intimate holiday concerts. The popular Candlelight concert series is bringing a little bit of Christmas charm to Richmond with mesmerizing performances inspired by holiday classics that will leave you in a cheery mood this season.
The holiday specials are set to take place at the historic Bolling Haxall House and The Hippodrome Theater on select dates this December. And if you were wondering, anyone can enjoy these breathtaking classical performances, regardless of whether you’ve been naughty or nice!
These holidays, listen to all your favorite Christmas songs with a twist! As you sit in a breathtaking setting surrounded by hundreds of twinkling candles, you will rediscover familiar tunes that immediately bring forth memories. Take for instance, “Hark! The herald angels sing”. The song celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ and the message of peace and goodwill, which you probably had to perform in a school recital.
Or rather, the nostalgic melodies of The Nutcracker, telling the story of a young girl named Clara who receives a nutcracker doll as a Christmas gift. You can hear these holiday staples and more at the historic Bolling Haxall House, performed by the incredibly talented Listeso String Quartet.
Calling all music fans! You can now immerse yourself in a festive world of Jazz and Soul classics at the Hippodrome Theater. Pure Soul Richmond will serenade you with festive tunes from the likes of Louis Armstrong, Stevie Wonder, Ella Fitzgerald, and more. Elevate your holiday season with a memorable candlelit evening filled with enchanting performances.
The holiday season is finally here and we couldn’t be more excited. It’s a welcome break from the stresses of everyday life and a reminder to get together with friends and family. But festive gatherings don’t need to be reserved to the same old traditions; we can create new ones. This year, we’re celebrating the most wonderful time of the year at enchanting Candlelight concerts full of Christmas magic.
