THE FIRST ANNUAL MALIOTIS GREEK MUSIC FESTIVAL
The Boston Lykeion Ellinidon and the Maliotis Cultural Center present this spring’s Greek Music Education Program. The spring 2019 course will meet on six Sunday afternoons between March 3rd and May 5th for 2.5 hours per session (2:00-4:30 pm) at the Maliotis Cultural Center (50 Goddard Avenue, Brookline).
The goal of the Greek Music Education Program is to increase knowledge of and appreciation for traditional Greek music. Our unique approach offers both educational presentations and the opportunity to participate by playing and singing.
Each session will have a different instructor and focus on a particular aspect of Greek music, including musical history, influences, instrumentation, styling, significant figures and musicians, and contemporary manifestations. The class will be participatory according to each leader’s discretion. The instructor may choose to invite participation throughout the session, or in a focused, compact period. Participants may elect to engage by listening, participating in the rhythmic element, singing, and/or playing their instrument.
The pre-registration fee is $25 per individual session, or $30 at the door (payable by cash/check.) The cost of pre-registration for the entire series is discounted to $125. Please visit www.bostonlykeion.orgto register.
