Eric Ericsonhallen: A Historic Concert Hall
Built between 1823-1849, the church replaced a small wooden church that had been destroyed by a fire in 1822. The neoclassical temple was inspired by the Pantheon in Rome and designed by the architect Fredrik Blom. Plain white walls, a coffered ceiling, and temple-shaped lantern light are some of the spectacular features contributing to its charm. A building well-acquainted with orchestras and classical music, Eric Ericsonhallen provides the perfect setting for intimate Candlelight concerts.
Musikaliska Kvarteret: A Musical Palace
Musikaliska Kvarteret is a striking musical palace that was built in 1878. Today, the historic building remains home to Länsmusiken, Stockholm County Orchestra, and Blåsarsymfonikerna, the brass symphony orchestra. The venue also continues to host classical concerts in its bar, bistro, and in the main hall. Its connection to music, orchestra in particular, makes it an idyllic setting for the Candlelight series’ enchanting performances.
Candlelight is an experience unlike any other, and you won’t want to miss out. And this is especially true when you combine the talented musicians with a setting lit only by the glow of a sea of candles.
