29.-30.09.07: Concerts for the fire victims of Ilia




THE ORCHESTRA “MIKIS THEODORAKIS”
STANDS BY THE FIRE VICTIMS OF THE PREFECTURE OF ILIA, PELOPONNESE





Untitled Document Herod Atticus Theatre, September 29th & 30th, 2007, 20:00pm

According to an announcement made by the Orchestra’s office following last weeks’ tragic events, the Orchestra “Mikis Theodorakis” has decided to use the two engaged performances’ dates at the Herod Atticus Theatre, in the framework of the “Meeting of the Greeks Abroad”, with a view to giving two popular concerts, co-organized by Lakis Lazopoulos, with the participation of many well-known popular songs interpreters, and to make over the full performances’ income to the fire victims of the prefecture of Ilia via the Western Greece District and the Prefecture of Ilia, Peloponnese.

Besides, very well known are the Orchestra’s ties with the region of Ancient Olympia, where we co-organize every summer events for the Greeks Abroad at the country church of Ai Yiannis in Makrisia.

The Orchestra “Mikis Theodorakis” declare with these concerts their support at this rough time and invite the audience through Mikis Theodorakis’ work to join their voice with the voices of beloved interpreters in an effort to blunt the terrible consequences of the fires.

Additionally, plastic artists cooperate through their works, the projection of which will create a virtual dialog with the set-to-music speech. The plastic artists will offer one more work of their choice to an auction, the income of which will support the tree-planting on the sacred Kronios hill in Ancinet Olympia.

The concerts are also supported by the charitable association “The Love”.

The concerts’ duration is 3 hours.

Tickets’ prices: VIP 50 €, low landing 35 €, high landing 25 €. Tickets are sold in advance at the Hellenic Festival box-office. Tel. +30 210 3272000, 39 Panepistimiou str. (inside the arcade), Mon – Fri 8:30 - 16:00 and Sat 9:00 - 14:30

Mikis Theodorakis’ music, not only during the difficult decades
but also in the political changeover,
has been a source of power and inspiration for the Greek plastic artists.
And this inspiration goes on as a red line with the young people.
40 of the country’s most important painters,
including younger ones, are devoting their work to the great composer.
