Concert with string quintet

If you want to enjoy much more than classical music, the musical events start today at the Megaro Gyzi Festival. In a very special concert, the singer Ioanna Forti is accompanied by mandolin, mandola, guitar and mantolotselo of the Athenian string quintet with guest star Raffaele La Ragione, the Italian rising star who plays mandolin.
The evening includes a wide range of songs starting from Baroque and Vivaldi, the Neapolitan tarantella, the Chitarrata, to contemporary film music (La Vita e bella), but also “the concert” by Manos Hadjidakis. This year's festival is dedicated to the memory of the great Greek composer Manos Hadjidakis.
The concert is held at 21.00 in the old 17th century mansion that hosts the Cultural Center Megaro Gyzi in Fira. Free admission.
