An American in Paris, Miguel Covarrubias, 1929

Musical promenades at the Museums III - America

Due to a minor health issue, which affected one of the members of the Woodwind quintet of the Athens State Orchestra, we had to postpone the concert "Musical promenades at the Museums III - America", which was scheduled for December 16th at the B & M Theocharakis Foundation for the Fine Arts and Music. We will inform you for the new date of the concert.

Any talk of American music inevitably calls jazz to mind, thanks to the power of allusion. And this 'black music’ really did leave an indelible mark on the work of many American composers of serious —and other forms of— music. In the run-up to Christmas, the Athens State Orchestra's dynamic Woodwind Quintet performs acknowledged masterpieces of American music whose vivacity and brio are completely in tune with the festive season.
