Organizers of a unique event series plan to bring their candlelit concert to Toronto this spring.

The concerts are described as a "one-of-a-kind experience in a candlelit setting," and have been hosted in over 85 cities internationally.

The Toronto shows will feature five of Chopin's famed compositions performed live by Ottawa musicians at "a beautiful venue bathed in candlelight."

The event has a runtime of 65 minutes, starting at 7:15 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. on various evenings throughout the month. Seating is first-come, first-served, but tickets must be purchased ahead of time.

Organizers of the event have put enhanced safety measures in place, including socially distanced tables, contactless payments, mandatory masks, and sanitization protocols.

Ontario currently allows for indoor events to take place in certain zones.

In the green zone, for example, 50 people are permitted indoors at a performing arts facility. A barrier is also required between the audience and players of brass or wind instruments.

As of now, though, Toronto remains under a stay-at-home order and plans for reopening have not been announced.

Toronto has also cancelled all major in-person events that take place outdoors until July 2021, including the Pride Parade and Canada Day festivals.

Despite all of this, the concert is still planning to share its delightful experience in light and sound with Toronto next month.
