Corfu Culture, Sports and Environment Association΄s event for World Music Day

World Music Day
09 Jun 2023 / 21:32

CORFU. "The event is a protest that expresses in a special way the disgust, injustice and anger for what has been happening to women worldwide in recent years".

World Music Day will be celebrated in an event dedicated to women on Saturday 17 June at 20:00 at the Old Palace Colonnade of the Corfu Museum of Asian Art.
 
The event is a protest that expresses in a special way the disgust, injustice and anger for what has been happening to women worldwide in recent years.
 
"Ageless women". Our goal is being implemented with the participation of special women:
 
- Kerstin Lindgren: Swedish visual artist, musician, dancer and great lover of Corfu. She expresses herself visually, presenting her paintings, and as an art dance performer, she creates the symphony of art, thus the symphony of life!

- Christina Paraskevopoulou: Painter from Athens who creates an artistic dialogue with Kerstin with her painting.
 
- Natalia Ekaterini Kerkira: Painter from Corfu with a very expressive style. She approaches the same subject in a completely different way.
 
Three special women, three artists, unite their energy and inspiration, creating a bridge of culture and art, a cultural communication, inside the Museum of Asian Art.
 
- Elina Vladi: Corfiot art dance performer, who collaborates with Kerstin for a few moments and then as a soloist, through cosmic energy and communication, creates the symphony of life.
 
Renowned musicians will accompany both dancers:
 
- Orestis Zafeiropoulos: Music composition and cello
 
- Socrates Anthis: Trumpet professor and conductor at 'Mantzaros' Philharmonic Society
 
- Spyros Rouvas: Composer and deputy conductor at 'Mantzaros' Philharmonic Society
 
- Louisa Vergi: Flute teacher
 
- Konstantinos Vlachos: Trombone, Ionian University
 
- Sophie Andrée: Tibetan Singing Bowls, Bells, Tingshas, Old Asian instruments
 

Recitation
 
- Nana Papadaki: Actress, writer, director and Yiannis Ritsos expert / Recitation of excerpts of Ritsos' poem "Helen"
