The Byzantine and Christian Museum
Leoforos Vasilissis Sofias 22, Athens
The female vocal ensemble Chórεs under the artistic direction of Marina Satti presents a dynamic polyphonic show where famous choral arrangements of traditional melodies from all corners of Greece are intertwined with new takes on folk songs written by distinguished contemporary composers for the ensemble.
Chórεs approach this eclectic repertoire with the fresh and unconventional eye that characterizes this unique ensemble’s steadily rising career, illuminating traditional musical material in contemporary, unexpected ways and highlighting the distinct vocal and kinaesthetic abilities of its members.
The show includes works by Mihalis Adamis, Giannis Giannakou, Eleonora Zacharia, Gianni Ioannidis, Alexandros Kapsokavathis, Alex Ktistakis, Martha Mavroidi, Alkis Baltas, Lagios Barntos, Christos Samaras, Nikos Skalkotas, Aggelos Triantafillou and Filippos Tsalachouris.
The ensemble is directed by head musician Irini Patseas and the dance by the choreographer Stavros Ikbal.
