Composer Stavros Xarchakos gives concert benefiting the union Together for the Child. He’ll lead the 12-member State Orchestra of Greek Music, in works by Mikis Theodorakis, Manos Hadjidakis and Xarchakos, poetry by: Nikos Gatsos, Federico Garcia Lorca (translated by Odysseus Elytis, Nikos Kazantzakis).

Three great performers will perform in the amazing theater under the Acropolis:

Elli Paspala, known for her deep, warm voice, is undoubtedly one of the most expressive Greek singers; Martha Frintzila, a singer who balances her singing along with outstanding visual performance, and Iro Saia, a remarkable new voice introduced to the world by Stamatis Kraounakis through the group Spira Spira.

If you are lucky enough to be in Athens on September 11, 2011, and are quick to grab tickets to this Odeon concert, you’l be certain to enjoy a sacr3ed evening under the light of the full moon in September, led by Xarchakos and a songlist that includes melodies by the greatest Greek composers. A unique concert for a great charity that will enchant, excite and delight the audience.

How does a little girl from Skokie, Illinois find herself in historical Athens, leading curious explorers through the winding streets of Plaka, down "pezodromos" to hidden ouzeries for tempting mezedhes and homemade barrel wine? The journey began more than twenty years ago, and regardless of whether the wanderlust comes from the spiritual and culture DNA flowing through my veins, or the alignment of the stars on that cold mid-December day this Sagitterian came into the world, I never seem to tire of exploring my adopted homeland of Greece. Here you'll join me as I explore Athens: be it the back streets of Psirri and Gazi, or through the National Gardens and Zappeio where a family of turtles makes their home, or down wide, treelined Imittou Street in Pagrati, which pulses with Athenian life 24 hours a day. And while Athens has stolen my heart, the rest of Greece vies for my curiousity and wanderlust. My two guys (that'd be the Greek God, Vasilis and our Greek dog, Scruffy) and I can often be found settling in for a long weekend in some charming mountain village, or a quaint fishing port on a nearby island, or learning how Greek vitners are producing wines that rival some of Napa Valley's finests productions, or celebrating a panayeri in Epirus or sharing in the festivities as a family of Cretan sheepherders come together to sheer their 1500 sheep in the spring ... And if you happen to find yourself heading to Athens, consider finding yourself a real home for your stay. Living amongst the locals, be it for 3 nights or 3 weeks, will offer you the chance to experience true Athens, beyond the Acropolis. Choose from one of our 5 beautiful penthouse and historical homes, and who knows, I may be leading you down that winding "pezodromo" to our favorite hidden ouzerie!
