Athens State Orchestra string quintet “Quintarco”

Dancing...

The concert is broadcast on Athens State Orchestra's Facebook profile and YouTube channel.

Five friends carry us away with music written to dance. They invite us to feel the rhythm. To extend it outwards through space and time. Near and far. Cavafy wrote that "When you dance, you write on the earth what your soul wants to say". For its part, music speaks to the soul and raises your spirits, stimulates your emotions. Marrying music and dance,  Quintarco invite us on this multi-dimensional journey...
