NEW YORK – Cyprus New York Productions presents the unique concert FAITH with exceptional tenor and cantor Demetris Michael at the Archdiocesan Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, 319 East 74th Street in Manhattan on Friday, Nov. 30, 7:30 PM.

On this spiritual journey through the centuries, Faith becomes a solid chain that links and merges Byzantine Hymns, Gregorian Chants, Operatic Arias, Gospel, musical theater, and pop music. Faith is not just words on a page or in a song, it is a way of life, it is an acceptance of what we cannot see but feel deep within our hearts.

FAITH is a farewell concert dedicated to our beloved Bishop Sevastianos, who will continue his great work in Atlanta.

Demetris Michael was trained in Classical and in Byzantine music, where he received his diploma from the Patriarchate of Constantinople. Michael’s incredible technique allows him to move easily from one style of music to another, not only with ease but also and more importantly with accuracy.

Michael will be accompanied by the talented Phyto Stratis on the keyboard, Ellie Tsachtani on flute, Peter Pearson on cello, and the sopranos Ariadne Panagopoulou and Christina Christofi. Phyto Stratis is the Artistic and Musical Director and Dino Antoniou is the Master of Ceremonies for the event.
