Stavros Xarhakos at the Herodion under the Acropolis

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.

Revenues from ticket sales will go entirely to the Union Together for Children.
