The Greek Institute invites you to its seventh annual Byzantine Christmas, a concert of virtuosic Byzantine Chant and the traditional Greek Kalanda for the Christmas season, directed by Spiro Antonopoulos and sung by the PSALTIKON Ensemble.
PSALTIKON will be joined by acclaimed world musicians Mal Barsamian (clarinet, oud), Beth Bahia Cohen (violin, lyra), Paddy League (laouto, tsambouna), and Nikos and Kostas Apazidis (pontiaki lyra, daouli) in a program of Byzantine chants and kalanda, the traditional Christmas carols from various regions of Greece. Beautiful passages from the Christmas stories of Photios Kontoglou (1895–1965) and Alexandros Papadiamantis (1851–1911) will be narrated throughout the program.
First Church Cambridge is fully accessible by T (Red Line, Harvard Square).
