International Concert Series in Reykjavík Church

By Iceland Review

The international concert series “Sumartónar í Ellidaárdal” (“Summer Tones in Ellidaárdalur”) will take place for the first time in the Reykjavík Fella- og Hólakirkja church on Thursday evenings at 8 pm in July this summer.

Fella- og Hólakirkja.

Many foreign guests, mostly from the Nordic countries, will contribute to make the concerts a fascinating experience, as stated in a press release from the organizers.

Fella- og Hólakirkja church is located in a beautiful and calm area high in the Ellidaárdalur area. It is surrounded by scenic walking paths and is a lovely place to visit on a beautiful summer night.

“Sumartónar í Ellidaárdal” offers an excellent opportunity to enjoy nature and good music at the same time.

The first concert of the series will take place July 2 with Eva Thyri Hilmarsdóttir (piano) and Gudný Einarsdóttir (organ). Einarsdóttir is the resident organist of Fella- og Hólakirkja.

This will be the first time for them to perform together, but both have won critical acclaim for many concert appearances, both in Iceland and abroad.

The program will be romantic with music by various French composers such as M. Ravel, E. Satie and J. Alain.

The price of admission is ISK 1,000 (USD 7.86, EUR 5.58) and tickets will be sold at the door and at the 12 Tónar record store on Skólavördustígur (a short distance away from Hallgrímskirkja cathedral in the city center).

The café in the Gerduberg cultural center will be open for business on Thursdays in July from 6 pm to 10 pm in connection with the concerts.

All further information about the concerts, performers, the church and its environment and how to get there can be found on the concert series’ website.
