The nights are getting colder and colder, and we can already hear the magical sounds of jingle bells in the distance. The holidays are officially on their way, and Candlelight is celebrating the season in the best way they know how. This December, the popular concert series is gifting DC with a special Christmas series in celebration of the magic of the festive season.
The cheery melodies of holiday classics in the likes of “Deck the Halls”, “Last Christmas” and “All I Want For Christmas Is You” will resound in stunning and culturally important venues across the city, including St. Francis Hall, The Howard Theatre and The Miracle Theatre that will be bathed in warm candlelight. The holidays have never sparkled this brightly!

Candlelight is gifting DC with not one, but two mesmerizing tributes with your favorite carols and timeless compositions that have become holiday staples, like Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker” and Debussy’s “The Snow is Dancing”.
Whether it’s songs depicting the birth of Jesus Christ, or compositions that transport us to fantastical worlds of sugar plum fairies, toy soldiers and more enchanting characters, these songs have become holiday traditions and we simply can’t have a holiday season without them. Taking place at St. Francis Hall and The Howard Theatre, the talented musicians of Kennedy String Quartet will give their take on these cheery tunes.
Wrap up the year with a bang at this magnificent concert that celebrates popular contemporary hits and other Christmas favorites at The Miracle Theatre. Think of classics like “Last Christmas” by Wham, the now legendary “All I Want For Christmas Is You” by Mariah Carey, or “Beautiful Day”, the uplifting U2 anthem and the 2022 sensation “Unholy”.
What’s more, these fan favorites and more will be reimagined by Vitamin String Quartet, a not-so-little group you might have heard in the hit Netflix series Bridgerton and Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story (hello?!). It’s a fun mix of all-time favorites and new hits that you won’t want to miss!
‘Tis the season to be with your loved ones and unleash your generous side and Candlelight truly is the gift that keeps on giving. It’s a unique musical experience you can enjoy on a romantic date, with your group of friends or family, or even on your own to escape the busy city. Be transported to your best holiday memories as you hear season staples at stunning venues across DC. There are two back-to-back performances on each evening, giving you plenty of time to grab a pre-show bite or a post-show dinner.
