Thomas Kinkade, Spirit of Christmas

Christmas concert

The Athens State Orchestra contributes to the festive spirit of the holiday season with a performance of one of JS Bach's most popular works, the Christmas Oratorio. The Oratorio is less focused on telling the story of the Nativity than it is on conveying the spirit of Christ's arrival in the world and spreading its eternal message of joy. An introspective work with moments of grandeur, the Oratorio proves that existential joy doesn’t need to shout to draw attention to itself... Under the baton of George Petrou, outstanding singers from Greece and abroad invite us to enjoy this Christmas with the requisite beauty and spirituality.
