In the heart of the Greek quarter in the city of gondoliers, the event is organized to celebrate the 450th anniversary of the completion of the Holy Church of St. George of the Hellenes which is the oldest and most historic Orthodox church of the Diaspora.

Demiri, after a series of successful performances in recent years in Greece and abroad (Paris, Montreal, Brussels, Florence, Stockholm, Tirana, Amman, Skopje, etc.), will present a program full of Greece… in Venice.

Scents of the sea and colors of the Greek land captured in the songs of great Greek composers, create the wonderful colorful canvas on which Kleoniki Demiri will perform, accompanied by Marina Tsokani on the piano.

A musical journey, full of love and memories, with songs by great composers, but also songs from the Greek tradition that promise to enchant not only expatriates but also the Italian-speaking audience.
