We are pleased to invite you to an evening of Greek chamber music. Looking as far back as the Odyssey, the Greeks have been telling their stories of long-lost time and place through song and verse. The Greek Chamber Music Project lovingly captures this deeply Hellenic experience in Sky, Send Me a Bird. GCMP curates pieces by Greek composers whose distant homelands and lost loves are kept aflame through their music.

Longtime collaborators Ellie Falaris Ganelin (flute) and Mary-Victoria Voutsas (voice and piano) lend their unique voices to this tender playlist incorporating their own compositions and arrangements to the mix. This full-length concert features the music of legends Manos Hadjidakis and Mikis Theodorakis, as well as living composers Christos Hatzis, Evangelos Kokkoris, and Michael Malis.

Thank you so much for coming! You were a thoughtful and attentive audience who asked such great questions afterwards. My next big concert is November 12 at St. Mary Magdalen in Berkeley, a tribute to Mikis Theodorakis in collaboration with the Berkeley Community Chamber Singers.
