Samos Young Artists Festival 2012
It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Samos Young Artists Festival 2012 and to introduce this year‘s theme: Music Flows across the Sea. The Festival will bring together new experiences, sounds, ideas and musicians from different cultures on the island of Samos. Various ensembles from Europe, the eastern Mediterranean region, and the USA will play classical and romantic pieces, as well as contemporary compositions from the home countries of participating musicians. The Festival will end with all musicians performing together. They will improvise to Greek folk songs and themes of selected international composers who have an anniversary in 2012, including a special tribute to Manolis Kalomoiris, 50 years after his death. It will be an honor to let us “carry” you across the sea, bringing optimism and creation a little closer.
