“A Sunday in September” Mid-century Modern Concert

« Back to All Events


This September, the Belleville Historical Society welcomes you into a Mid-century Modern home designed by architect Charles E. King to enjoy period music and help us raise funds to restore the home and open it to the public.

Designed in 1952 for Terry and Thelma Blazier, the home was purchased by the Belleville Historical Society in 2015 to serve as a Mid-century Modern Architecture Museum. We are in the process of renovations so the building will serve as a faithful example of the architectural style and King’s work.

We are honored and delighted that this event will present classical Mid-century music featuring world-class cellist Ida Edwards Mercer. A cocktail hour will follow the performance.
