In the heart of Copenhagen close to Amalienborg Castle sits the charming Odd Fellow Palace (Odd Fellow Palæet). It was established between 1752 and 1755 and it was once the home of a noble Copenhagen family. Now it will be home to some amazing and atmospheric Candlelight Concerts.
With long-standing links to the royal family, you can expect this place to be pretty spectacular. It’s decorated in the most beautiful Rococo style and the building has been maintained perfectly over its long life, with floors polished to perfection and gorgeous high ceilings. These ceilings will make for the most incredible acoustics, so let us give you a taste of what’s on the roster at the stunning building.
Well, there’s something for absolutely everyone, with a huge variety of candlelight concerts hitting the city. You can catch a candlelit tribute to the works of Hans Zimmer and John Williams who wrote the music for films such as Harry Potter and Star Wars. Film fans are sure to love this wonderful concert at the iconic Odd Fellow Palace. Click here to see the current dates available.
You can also hear ‘Hymn For The Weekend’, ‘Fix You’ and ‘Yellow’, amongst other hits from Coldplay performed by a brilliant pianist, and it’s sure to be even more soul-stirring than the original, bathed in candlelight. Those polished floors will reflect the flicker of those candles with beautiful affect. The first concert took place on May 4 and it was an incredible experience (see the photos below).
Then the songs of a modern icon, Taylor Swift, will be performed by a talented string ensemble. There’s nothing quite like hearing ‘Shake It Off’ and ‘Love Story’ by candlelight in the most magical of rooms at Odd Fellow Palace, for which you can buy tickets here.
Plus, another beautiful tribute to Ludovico Einaudi’s compositions will be performed at the lovely Odd Fellow Palace. If you thought that Einaudi’s music couldn’t get any more romantic then just wait until you’ve seen a pianist perform it by candlelight!
