Title: “Creating a Choral Ensemble - Preparing and Organizing an International Student Festival on Music”.
CALL FOR PARTITIPATION
The Municipality of Kavala, the Holy Metropolis of Philippi, Neapolis & Thassos , the Region of Eastern Macedonia & Thrace and the Music High School of Kavala invite you to Kavala from 06 to 11 May 2020 to the festival co-organised in honour of Apostle St. Paul.
This year’s events are dedicated to the composer Mikis Theodorakis, one of the most important living Greek composers, who spent his childhood in various towns of the Greek countryside, and consequently was influenced by the traditional melodies and at a very early age decided to divide his life between music and struggles for humanitarian values. His early choral works, like the Tune of Kassiani came up because there existed “a living tradition in church and choral works”. From Mytilene to Kephalonia and from Giannena to Tripolis traditional Greek melodies have left their imprint upon the works of Mikis Theodorakis.
