Music at the Cathedral of the Isles
The Cathedral, with its fine acoustics, provides an ideal setting for concerts, recitals and music breaks. The annual concert series Music for a Summer Afternoon draws performers and audiences from far and wide
The 2022 concert series began on Easter Day with a Concert for Ukraine, given by Feargus Hetherington, violin and Alastair Chisholm, piano. Canon Alec Boyd writes:
"Thank you to both Feargus and Alastair for a wonderful concert. Thank you too to everyone’s generosity as we were able to send a significant contribution to the Ukraine appeal"
