Event description

Description

This year's reception at the Greek Consulate provides opportunities for meeting Axion Foundation’s international ensemble of chanters. The Axion Estin chanters return to The Met’s Medieval Sculpture Hall (Gallery 305) for the critically acclaimed Byzantine Pop-Ups. Praised by the New Yorker as a “commendable effort to bring holiday music back to the magnificent space,” the chanters perform ancient sacred and secular chants in Greek, Arabic, Armenian and Russian, in front of the only full-scale, authorized painted copy of the Deesis Mosaic from Hagia Sophia. Friday, December 16, at 4, 6, and 8 pm, in Gallery 305, Medieval Sculpture Hall.
