Nestled in the heart of Glasgow, Platform invites music lovers to a new series of Candlelight concerts, where the soft glow of a sea of flickering candles set the stage for an intimate musical experience. As the night falls, you will be transported to a world of sound, where the melodies of a range of genres – from jazz to movie soundtracks to rock – fill the air. A talented group of musicians will take to the stage, inviting you to lose yourself in the music and connect with the performers.
On January 27, leave rock behind and let yourself be swept away by the soothing sounds of jazz. As you sit in the cozy atmosphere, surrounded by the soft glow of candles, you’ll be able to fully immerse yourself in the smooth sounds of jazz. The band will take you on a musical journey through the history of jazz, performing classics by Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and other iconic artists. You’ll be able to get up close and personal with the musicians, and really feel the energy and emotion in their performance. Whether you’re a jazz aficionado or just looking to relax and unwind, this candlelit jazz night will provide the perfect escape from the stresses of daily life.
Taking place on February 23 at 6:00 p.m., Candlelight: The Best of Hans Zimmer will transport you to different realms where lions sing and spies jump from dream to dream, stealing information. Indulge yourself in the world of German film score composer and record producer Hans Zimmer. You’ll hear music from The Lion King, Inception, Gladiator, The Dark Knight and many more. Zimmer’s music is known for its use of electronic and orchestral elements and for its ability to effectively convey emotion and enhance the storytelling of a film— now add the soft glow of candles and call that a plan!
However, if the world of film isn’t your thing but rocking it out is, then A Tribute to Queen is the right candlelit concert for you. On February 23 at 8:30 p.m., you’ll be able to start your year like a true champion. Experience the music of one of the greatest rock bands of all time in a unique and immersive way. From Bohemian Rhapsody to Under Pressure, enjoy your favourite hits and discover deep cuts from Queen. As the acoustic sound of a string quartet eases you into Queen’s compositions, the intimate setting and warm glow of candles enhance the emotional impact of the music.
