SNFCC once again welcomes Parklife, the series of concerts at Stavros Niarchos Park, inviting the audience to a unique experience where music animates nature, and nature enhances the music experience.
On Saturday, the 26th of August, at 20:30 in the Great Lawn, we return to the city with a unique concert by the Athens State Orchestra. Favorite melodies from popular musicals will pour out of Stavros Niarchos Park! Excerpts from West Side Story, The Phantom of the Opera, Chicago, South Pacific and Girl Crazy by composers including Leonard Bernstein, George Gershwin and Andrew Lloyd Webber will enchant young and old in a concert you can enjoy lying down on the grass.
The Athens State Orchestra is the oldest orchestral music ensemble in Greece and a top-flight symphonic orchestra with far-ranging activity. Especially for the concert at the Great Lawn, the Orchestra will be directed by the distinguished Greek conductor Vladimiros Symeonidis, featuring the young and gifted Vassia Zacharopoulou and Spyros Klissas in covers of classics, such as The Music of the Night and I Could Have Danced All Night.
