EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMMES

 
A real feast of organ music with onstage tours for young and old, musical events around the small organ in the foyer, and a concert, with Ourania Gassiou and Eleni Keventsidou at the magnificent Megaron organ.
The glorious evening will open with a well-known piece for church organ: Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor that we loved as children in Walt Disney’s Fantasia. A spectacular array of compositions and timbres, and a unique opportunity to become acquainted with the amazing evolution of the hydraulis, created in Alexandria twenty-four centuries ago by Greek inventor and mathematician Ctesibius.
