ATHENS - Throughout Europe, including Greece, concert halls remain temporarily closed, taking part in the overall effort to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
But music and art are always present, more so today, in these difficult times, either through the touching Italian songs on the balconies or through the online performances of many artists who bring the joy of music to all who we need it from their homes.
The Athens Concert Hall, a member of the European Concert Hall Organisation (ECHO), is participating in a concerted effort to provide the public with wonderful music from Europe's largest concert venues, in the safety and comfort of home.
"We invite you to travel digitally to some of the most historic concert venues in various European cities, through a series of amazing facebook shows every night at 21:00. You have only to relax and enjoy!" the Athens Concert Hall said in its announcement.
