Classical Fantasia at Kirkstall Abbey
I just got back from a magical evening of classical music and fireworks set in the ruins of a 12th century Abbey.
Though the weather forecast promised rain for most of the afternoon we decided the weather wasn't going to stop us.
I was very excited to see/hear classical superstars Noah Stewart and Laura Wright whose voices gave me goosebumps. An almost perfect evening, and the rain stopped just as we unfolded our chairs!
