Athens State Orchestra Brass Workshop: Closing Concert


The customary annual closing concert of the 6th Athens State Orchestra Brass Workshop in a festive atmosphere!
During the academic year 2017-18, workshop participants had a chance to creatively collaborate with experienced and distinguished brass musicians of the Athens State Orchestra, to be taught by them, and enjoy musical collaboration through group work and an acquaintance with the orchestral repertoire. It is this very mood that they will try to convey to their audience in this concert, uniting forces in chamber music works for brass.
