Violinist Leonidas Kavakos Receives Greek Parliament’s Gold Medal

ATHENS – Internationally acclaimed violinist and conductor Leonidas Kavakos was decorated with the Hellenic Parliament’s Gold Medal by Parliament President Constantine Tassoulas on Tuesday.

In an announcement, it was noted that Kavakos was awarded for his significant contribution to the promotion and recognition of Greek cultural output worldwide, but also for his humanitarian support to the war-afflicted people of Ukraine. Kavakos recently organized a charity concert for Ukraine at the Athens Concert Hall that was attended by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

Prior to the recognition, Kavakos was given a tour of the exhibition “Beholding Liberty! At the Hellenic Parliament, two centuries later” in the Parliament building that was curated by the Library of the Parliament. It commemorates the bicentennial of Greece’s 1821 War of Independence.
