Leelanau Summer Music Festival 7/7

Leelanau Summer Music Festival 07/07/13 – 3:00PM Cedar – Holy Rosary Arts & Education Centre’s
“Quartet For The End Of Time” by the French mystic Olivier Messiaen is the 20th century’s most profound musical statement of Christian spirituality. This masterpiece was premiered in 1941 while Messiaen was held prisoner during World War II. He sketched the music after obtaining pencil and paper from a sympathetic guard. Inspired by the Biblical Book of Revelation, this music carries the listener beyond the horrors of a dread Apocalypse, among the vivid colors of nature’s song in the Next World, to a vision of Christ timeless, beyond tears. You will be awed and uplifted.
Advance tickets $15 , At the door $20 , Season Tickets $35
Box Office: 231-228-5429 ext. #4 Seating is limited so order your tickets early!
