Set in the stunning St George’s Cathedral, flooded by candlelight, guests are welcome to enjoy food and bar options whilst Perth Symphony brings to life the music of Mozart, juxtaposed with works by living composers Joe Chindamo (AUS), Jonathan Dove (UK) and more, who have drawn inspiration from Mozart's musical legacy and bringing a whole new life to classical music.

Having been rested in 2018, the Candlelight Series is anything but a traditional concert and the evening is woven together with letters written by Mozart himself, giving a unique insight into the mind of this iconic composer.

The program includes a world premiere: a complete reimagining of Eine Kleine Nachtmusik by renowned Australian composer Joe Chindamo, tailored to a contemporary audience, commissioned by Perth Symphony especially for this concert. Expect to hear the music of Mozart like never before, as Perth Symphony gives the WA premiere performance of Dove’s ‘An Airmail Letter to Mozart’ along with Mozart’s most beloved classics and greatest earworms of all time.

This concert is made possible thanks to funding from the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, and support from Silverstream Wines.
