The Hellenic Culture and Heritage Society, Inc. presents: Soprano Julie Ziavras presents an acoustic program of Greek classic and popular songs, capturing the lyric expression and the rich, deep texture of the Greek spirit and culture.
With a variety of songs and ballads ranging from the plaintive to the rhythmic, Julie’s repertoire includes songs by the most prominent Greek songwriters, (Hadjidakis, Theodorakis, Tsitsanis), rembetika (Greek blues) and traditional folk. Many of her selections have lyrics by Nobel Prize winning poets and are of historical and cultural significance. Julie will introduce the songs to enhance the experience for the non-Greek speaking audience, with an explanation of the musical styles and how they express the history and culture of the Greek people. She is accompanied by pianist Athena Adamopoulos and Kostas Psarros, bouzouki.
There will be an artist reception after the concert and refreshments served. The University is donating light Greek food platters and the Hellenic Culture and Heritage Society will provide pastries. Admission is FREE and the concert is open to the public.
