Leading Organisation: MUSIC HIGH SCHOOL OF KAVALA.

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 and Thasos, the Region of Eastern Macedonia and Thrace and the Music School of Kavala, are happy to invite you to Kavala from 05th - 09th May 2022, to participate in the festival co-organized in honor of Apostle Paul, under the title:

«Singing and Making Melody in your Heart…»

On the occasion of the recent passing of Mikis Theodorakis, this year's 6th in a row festival, is dedicated to our great national music composer, who from a very early age decided to divide his life between music and struggles for humanitarian values. Experiencing his childhood in various cities of the Greek province, he came into contact with traditional Greek melodies from one side of the country to the other, which played a decisive role in shaping his later artistic career. His early choral works - such as the Troparion of Kassiani - arose because "There was a living tradition of our own in both ecclesiastical and choral works".

Wishing to share with you this musical heritage and under the guidance of distinguished artists and academic scholars of music and culture, the students will have the experience of a) Choral performance of byzantine hymns in the liturgical space and time of churches b) Performance of musical works in public spaces of our urban environment c) Specific educational programs and d) Creative assimilation of musical stimuli and innovative practices.
