The Blue Church summer concert series
The Blue Church Summer Concert Series was founded in 1998 by Muff Worden, musician and Sigurður Jónsson engineer. The concerts are held in the church of Seyðisfjörður on Wednesday nights in July and early August. The aim is to offer a program consisting of different music styles, where classical music, jazz and blues, folk music and lighter music get to shine. The performers are usually highly qualified musicians.
The Seyðisfjörður church is a good concert house, praised by the performers. It houses a fairly new Steinway grand piano and a Frobenius organ with 14-15 stops. It has seats for 300 people. The concert guests are both locals and foreign travellers.
The concerts are held in the Seydisfjordur church. An emphasis has been on offering a varied type of concerts where classical music, jazz and blues, folk music and lighter music can be enjoyed.
The concerts start at 20:30 and the tickets are sold at the church entrance half an hour before.
Standard ticket price is 3000ISK and 2000ISK for students and seniors.
