Online concerts from Europe

In cooperation with ECHO

Enjoy music from the greatest European concert Halls on Megaron’s Facebook page every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday.
A cooperation of Megaron, the Athens Concert Hall, with the European Concert Hall Organisation (ECHO).
Stay Home!
Across Europe most of our venues are temporarily closed, this is an essential measure which we take very seriously as part of the essential civic effort
we must all take to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Music and Arts of course go on, more so than ever in times of adversity, whether through the rousing song of the Italian public on their balconies
to the ingenious creativity of many individual musicians performing from their homes and bringing their art to those in need.

As venues across Europe we wanted to join together and to collaborate in order to offer you a selection of wonderful music
from many of Europe’s leading concert halls, delivered direct to your homes.

We invite you to travel virtually with us around these beautiful European venues and cities, in a series of wonderful performances,
streamed nightly via facebook at 21:00

Sit back and enjoy!
