Pancyprian Choir Spring Concert Tribute to Mikis Theodorakis May 22

ASTORIA – The Pancyprian Association Cultural Division presents the Pancyprian Choir of New York and its soloists with Artistic and Musical Director Phyto Stratis in the Annual Family Spring Concert, A Tribute to Mikis Theodorakis- Xrysoprasino Fyllo – Gold Green Leaf, on Sunday, May 22, 7:30 PM at the Hellenic Cultural Center, 27-09 Crescent Street in Astoria.

Featuring beloved classics by the late legendary Greek composer, the event is held under the auspices of the Federation of Cypriot American Organizations and the Consulate General of the Republic of Cyprus in New York.

Originally planned in honor of Theodorakis’ 95th birthday in 2020, the concert was postponed due to the pandemic, though rehearsals continued throughout the lockdown via Zoom. Once in-person rehearsals could resume, the Choir began the preparations for its annual Christmas Concert which was held with great success at St. Catherine and St. George Church on December 18. The Choir then returned to rehearsing for the Theodorakis tribute concert as well as the annual EOKA commemoration which took place on April 3.

Audience members can look forward to another emotionally moving concert from the Choir and its gifted soloists on May 22. The songs on the program include Tis Dikeosinis, Ena to Helidoni, and, of course, Xrysoprasino Fyllo- Gold Green Leaf.

Theodorakis is perhaps best known for his scores for the Oscar-winning films Zorba the Greek (1964) and Z (1969), as well as the Oscar-nominated Serpico (1973). He passed away at the age of 96 on September 2, 2021. Theodorakis was among those commemorated in the In Memoriam at the 94th Academy Awards on March 27.

Tickets for the tribute concert on May 22 are $25 available at the door.

More information is available by phone: 917-821-0281.
