Side by side

Co-production with the Hellenic-American Educational Foundation

Being fully aware that the education of our future audience but also the training of young music students are matters of the highest importance for a historical artistic institution, members of the Athens State Orchestra make the most of each opportunity to stand by young people and to impart their love of making music. Under this perspective, the Orchestra’s collaboration with the College Symphony Orchestra, the Hellenic-American Educational Foundation’s Orchestra, is for everyone an ideal timing of a first-class opportunity for coexistence among professional musicians and young music students. For the first, the youngsters’ freshness and enthusiasm is a welcome source of energy and spirit, while the later learn in action the demands but also the joy of the disciplined musical collaboration within a professional symphonic orchestra.

After the opening of the concert by the Hellenic-American Educational Foundation’s Choir who will interpret four popular songs, members of both orchestras will perform “side by side” a rich programme that is covering a wide stylistic spectrum.
