With over a thousand flickering candles illuminating the performers — Vienna Light Orchestra will be paying tribute to the powerful music of The Greatest Showman and MUCH more.

The timeless music of The Greatest Showman is an evening at the Theatre you and your family will not soon forget. Whether you’re looking for a beautiful and unique Peoria event or an evening with the powerful music of “The Greatest Showman” as a Candlelit Experience, this event is for you.

The original cinematic musical released in 2017 is based on the story and life of P.T. Barnum who was a famous Showman and Entertainer. The unforgettable music centers around his creation of the Barnum & Bailey Circus and of course—the lives of its star attractions.

Vienna Light Orchestra’s awe inspiring performance is a positive interruption from the noise of the world — while elevating audiences into an atmosphere of inspirational, motivational music. In the same way Barnum and those in the circus stayed focused and embraced who they were—they disregarded the negativity around them through the magical message of — “all things being possible to those who believe.”

Audiences have loved the Greatest Showman because it is a classic rags to riches story which is now one of the most successful musicals of all time! “Ladies and Gents—this is what you’ve waited for.” — P.T. Barnum

Held in specially selected venues in comfortable idyllic settings so you can escape with inspirational music in a relaxed but awe inspiring atmosphere bathed by the flicker of over a thousand candlelights. Prepare to soar into the clouds! This concert series is coming to the Scottish Rite Theatre, a historical venue of purpose and elegance located in the heart of downtown Peoria, IL.

It is quite possible you’ve never experienced sweeping melodies quite like this. Over two thousand flickering candles illuminate the performers while the VIENNA LIGHT ORCHESTRA presents a tribute to The Greatest Showman and so much more.


“Every concert is a delightful experience, and I believe there is no greater enjoyment than the freedom of expression for a musician and audience. The Vienna Light Orchestra was created as a way to illuminate the world of orchestral music in a new light. You know how some people are so intimidated by classical music that they stay away? With us, things are different. The VLO has youthful, excited musicians who perform from their hearts — and touch hearts, every evening. You’ll see us having fun with the audience…clapping, laughing and swaying with songs that are filled with so much joy.” The Director

From the Founder & Producer of Vienna Light Orchestra

“When I was a teenager I wrote a song called Eternal Love. I was spellbound by the sweeping melodies that came flooding through the piano which has become the rhythm of my life. Today, I’m thrilled to bring a lot of the worlds most beloved music to audiences everywhere. My dream is to help make the entirety of orchestral music enjoyable, fresh and delightful for everyone!”


The year has become one of the most successful years for the Vienna Light Orchestra. They had already visited Europe, the Baltics, North America and South America, and that was just the beginning! The Vienna Light Orchestra players believe that music connects the world through ONELOVE, ONEHEART and ONESOUL—bound together by the JOY of MUSIC.

VIENNA LIGHT ORCHESTRA will end the 2022 year with 15 Christmas concerts in the month of December. The beautiful series features some of the world’s most beloved Christmas music, played by world-class musicians while candlelit by over 2,000 flickering lights.
