First Festival of Sacred Music at 17 Landmarks of Athens

ATHENS – The first festival of sacred music in the Greek capital kicks off on Monday, which is Holy Monday in the Orthodox Church calender, at 17 landmarks in Athens’ historic Plaka district and the city centre. The festival, a new organisation under art director Giorgos Koumentakis, will present a ‘music marathon’ of 62 concerts and cultural activities, approaching multiple and unexpected aspects of the relationship between religious worship and music, which will be held in museums, archaeological sites, churches, streets and squares. The festival is to conclude on Holy Wednesday and is co-organised by the Culture and Sports Ministry and the bodies under its supervision, the Greek National Opera and Eurolife FFH. Entrance to all venues will be free of charge without advance bookings. Tickets will be given on first-come, first-served basis.
