The Blue Idol Quaker Meeting House
Midsummer Concert at The Blue Idol
Set in the picturesque Blue Idol Quaker Meeting House, this concert sees a return of music by many of the international artists and musicians who have been part of the Shipley Arts Festival community for more than nineteen years. The Bernardi Music Group play Descending Blue by Cecilia McDowall; Olivier Messiaen’s violin and cello movements from The Quartet for End of Time; John Rutter’s Suite Antique; and Michael Berkeley’s Sonatina.
It has been said by the Quakers that, “Music is eternal. Music sustains us whether we are listening to others, or making our own music together. Music has the power to change our sense of the world and ourselves. It connects us with one another and to something greater than ourselves. This evening will be a celebration of music to sustain and delight you.“
We very much look forward to welcoming you to this special midsummer evening and for you to see how music can be transformational and life changing.
