A Benefit Summer Concert Not to Miss – Lykavittos Theater, June 19

June 19, 2009, at the theater atop Athen’s Mount Lykavittos (or Lycabettus Hill, as some of my fellow English speakers call it) some of Greece’s biggest names will gather, raising their voices in song to raise funds and awareness for equal opportunities for people with special needs. Proceeds from this concert will be donated to the Center for Rehabilitation for Children with Special Needs.

Tickets are available online at ticketnet.gr, by phone at 210/88.40.600 or at the Public store in Syntagma Square. Advance, in person tickets are 20 euro, 21 euro if bought online or by phone.

The headliner, Kostas Makedonas, will be joined by Yiorgos Dalaras, Manolis Mitsias, Lavrentis Maharitsas, Pentelis Thalassinos, Melina Kana, Melina Aslanidou, Yiannis Mikiokas, Yiannis Koutras and Dimitris Starovas …

The Center, which began in the prefecture of Corinth in 1996, now serves 150 children from across Korinthia, Arcadia and Agolioda.
