On the occasion of the Greek Independence Day the Branch of the Hellenic Foundation for Culture in Odessa organizes the festive evening and the concert “Musical traditions of Mediterranean” by the Greek Musical Ensemble “En Chordais” (Concert Hall, Philharmonic Orchestra in Odessa).
The Hellenic Foundation for Culture decided to invite “En Chordais” because “with its programme pushes forward common traditions and elements of the learned and traditional secular musical creation of Mediterranean, a multicultural area with an obvious common musical heritage”, explains the President of the Hellenic Foundation for Culture, Professor G. Babiniotis in his prologue to the catalogue accompanying the exhibition.
The European Commission declared 2008 as the European Year of Intercultural Dialogue. HFC participates in this European initiative and organizes “a series of events on the subject of immigration” asserts Professor G. Babiniotis. “The concert by En Chordais is part of this programme of events, emphasizing the importance of intercultural dialogue”.
The concert is organized in collaboration with the Prefectural Committee of Odessa.
