Τhe concert, will be live-streamed via the social networks of the “ANO” International Organ Festival and will be presented by Nikos Kanellopoulos, radio producer and consultant for the festival’s artistic program.

On Monday, June 20, 8 p.m., the day before the concert is held, Tea Kulaš will give a lecture with the ecclesiastical organ as its topic.

The partnership between the “ANO” International Organ Festival and the Zadar Organ Festival takes place within the framework of the SONIC Project, which is implemented by the Syros Greek Catholic Association, and funded by the Erasmus+ program. Its goal is to raise awareness among the young on the ecclesiastical organ and its artistic value. It also aims at showcasing the creative evolution of cultural heritage. It is within that same framework that our ecclesiastical organ workshops will take place on June 19 & 20, at St. George’s Cathedral, Ano Syros, under the artistic supervision of organist Tea Kulaš.

All events are implemented with the support of the Catholic Diocese of Syros.
