Overview

MEGARON FOR CHILDREN – EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMMES

The Athens Concert Hall is organizing also this year the Young Composers’ Workshop, an institution introduced in 1997 by the composer, conductor and academic, Theodore Antoniou, providing the chance for young artists to present their work. This year’s Workshop will run from 8-13 May, and will end with a presentation of their work at a concert in the Dimitris Mitropoulos Hall.
This event dedicated to Nikos Kazantzakis on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of his death. Thus, young composers taking part in the Workshop are invited to use excerpts from the works of the great author as a starting point for their compositions. The collaboration between Kazantzakis Publications and their scientific director Dr Nikos Mathioudakis, who participates in the process in an advisory capacity, is particularly valuable.
The preparation and presentation of the compositions will be arranged in collaboration between the Greek Composers Union and the Hellenic Group of Contemporary Music under the direction of Iakovos Konitopoulos.

There will be performances of works by Xenia KonstantinidouYiorgos Papaeconomou
and Konstantinos Haliasas
