What better way to say those all-important three words than by surprising your boo with a classical concert illuminated by candlelight? With breathtaking live music and a sea of twinkling candles, this series of swoon-worthy concert specials is enough to get Saint Valentine himself falling at your feet. So if you’re on the hunt for a special Valentine’s Day plan but you’re still unsure if these concerts have what it takes to woo, we’ve rounded up some reasons why Candlelight makes for the ultimate date idea in San Diego.
1. Candles always dial up the romance
The soft amber tones produced by candlelight generates a sense of calm and tranquility in any space. Light a candle in the darkest of rooms and you’ll be immersed in a warm glow that quickly puts the body and soul at ease. Feelings of stress and anxiety slowly melt away, and our minds become more relaxed, open and receptive to all the languages of love. So as thousands of candles flicker at one of these concerts, take a moment to caress your lover’s hand, exchange a stolen glance or two and show them how much you really care.
2. Live music hits every time
No matter the time of year, listening to live music hits every time. Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be on fast approach for us to feel all the feels when musicians serenade us with soothing melodies in front of our very eyes and ears. That being said, when Cupid’s special day looms on the horizon, there’s no denying that’s there’s something extra special in the air that makes listening to live music feel that little bit more magical. And when a string quartet joins in on the fun, there’s really nothing more enchanting during the season of love.
3. Candlelight sets the tone for a romantic pre or post-show plan
Attending a Candlelight concert is the perfect excuse to go all out on your date night. Why not surprise your Valentine with a pre-concert meal in a snazzy San Diego restaurant? Or if you want to continue on Candlelight’s magic once the final note has played, take your date to a trendy cocktail bar and discuss every intricate detail of the show. The best part is, there are usually two performances on the night, so you’re free to choose which concert time suits your date plans best.
Valentine’s Day lands on a Wednesday this year, and Candlelight has multiple concerts that fall on and around February 14 for you to choose from. With string instruments and thousands of candles in tow, these concerts are helping sparks fly in San Diego, and they’re the perfect date plan to experience with your ever-lasting love.
