Art & Culture Things To Do In New Orleans

Experience Magical Candlelight Concerts In This Stunning Open-Air Oasis This Fall

By Secret New Orleans November 13, 2020

Escape to a glittering New Orleans garden this fall at these enchanting Candlelight classical music concerts.

You can still experience an absolutely magical (and safe) autumn here in New Orleans, and part of that is thanks to the amazing outdoor spaces the city has to offer. Luckily, Fever Originals is bringing its wildly popular Candlelight concert series to a beautiful open-air venue for the season.

The series showcases classical music performances in an utterly magical setting, as top musicians are completely surrounded by flickering candlelight. For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.

And of course, the new open-air venue will allow for a stylish but safe socially distant setting. Enjoy an amazing night outdoors while being whisked away by the beautiful, tranquil sounds of classical numbers.

You can already be a classical fan, but have no fear if you don’t know all things Vivaldi—simply sit back and savor the stunning pieces you’ll hear. Programs include classics like Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and More and  Celebrating 250 Years of Beethoven. There will even a Holiday Jazz special with New Orleans’ own The Nayo Jones Experience!

There will be two shows each evening with time beforehand to enjoy a few sips or a bite. Please note that the earlier performance will take place during daylight hours, so the space will not be quite as dark, but still just as enchanting!

Prepare to be taken away by the intimate lush surroundings of Paradigm Gardens. Originally started as a community garden, this space has since morphed into a complete operation, supplying local restaurants with the freshest of ingredients. 

You’ll be seated in their charming outdoor oasis alongside this very vegetation, with food and nonalcoholic beverages available for additional purchase. You can also bring your own alcoholic beverages with you to the concert. Wine, beer, and canned spirits are allowed; no other alcoholic beverages are permitted. If you plan to bring alcoholic beverages, you will be asked to show valid identification.

Tickets can be purchased in groups of two or four, and there’s even a private table tucked into the garden for a table of 8.

Don’t miss out on what’s sure to be one of the city’s most popular autumn events! Purchase your tickets for this incredible concert series here.

All shows will follow the government guidelines for safety measures and the events will always operate at safe capacities set out by law.
