Musicians of MSO of Athens will participate in the historical "Georgios Averof Battleship" special events, celebrating the 70th anniversary, since the legendary Greek cruiser carried the Greek government-in-exile back to liberated Athens, as the flagship of the exiled Hellenic Navy, under the command Captain Theodoros Koundouriotis. The ceremony events will take place from October 17th until 19th.
The Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra of Athens is here! Founded by the internationally acclaimed concert pianist, conductor and composer Vassilis Tsabropoulos, after his public open invitation in the middle of May 2014. The Orchestra is mainly orientated towards a classical symphonic repertoire.
At a time when one Orchestra after another is closing down and culture has been undermined and sidelined as a luxury due to the economic crisis, the founding of MSO of Athens hopes to remind us that Music and Musicians in this country continue to exist and that their contribution to society is important and necessary and should not be considered a mundane pass-time and since you are seeking a miracle and a change in the reality of your daily life, you yourself must become that miracle.
