One of Adelaide’s finest examples of Victorian architecture, this venue is also one of the city’s most versatile performance spaces. The reason why the Auditorium is so impressive is because of its barrel-vaulted ceiling, which is made of plaster and timber, a great combination for superb acoustics. The seating is also arranged in a horseshoe shape around the stage, so there’s not a bad seat in the house.
Oh, and did I mention its historic pipe organ? It’s been around since 1877 and is one of the biggest and most important organs in the Southern Hemisphere. Add to that magical orchestral renditions of some of the biggest names in music played by live musicians, as they’re surrounded by countless candles—it’s a match made in heaven!
This is another space inside the Town Hall that has hosted many notable events and concerts. This season, they can add a few more to the list, as Candlelight is hosting a series of classical music concerts at the grand and elegant venue. The venue’s high ceilings, large stage and excellent sound system make it a unique and ideal venue for intimate concerts under the glow of candlelight.
The former Methodist Meeting Hall is the last remaining part of a greater complex which was once the centre of Methodism in South Australia. It was designed by Edmund Wright, one of the leading architects of the period and built in 1862. It boasts a mid-Victorian Gothic hall, holding great appeal for history and architecture buffs alike.
Adelaide is known for its lush beauty and radiant opals, but soon it will also be synonymous with stunning Candlelight concerts. You can simply sit back and savor classical renditions of some of the greatest music of all time.
The concerts have been met by countless 5-star reviews, and guests have called it “a creative, enchanting, and new concert experience.”
