If you missed Athens Big Band in the fall when they performed (for free!), head over to the “Anna & Maria Kalouta” Athens Cultural Center at 6a Timokreodos street in nearby Neos Kosmos on December 27, 2010 for another chance.

If you aren’t in Athens for this free concert, be sure to check back on our events calendar or with the cityofathens.gr because they’ve got a great lineup of free concerts throughout the autumn and winter. This is a great venue to see a variety of performances, including traditional Greek music covering a range of genres.

Never heard of the City of Athens Big Band? I saw them last at this spot in October 2010 when they performed with the amazing Hara Kefala:

ΧΑΡΑ ΚΕΦΑΛΑ & Athens Big Band

The cultural center is about 10 minutes by taxi from Syntagma Square, roughly behind the Ledra Marriot Hotel and around the corner from the Athens Atrium Hotel. It’s worth the drive or walk to see something here …
