El Sistema Greece and ONIRAMA bring the Christmas world of SNFCC to life with an explosive concert full of bright memories
Wednesday 1 December | 19.00 | Agora SNFCC
The talented young musicians of El Sistema Greece, return for the fourth time to the decorated Agora of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, and after a year without live festive concerts, they solemnly press RESTART and invite ONIRAMA on stage to inaugurate this year’s Christmas world of the SNFCC, with a subversive joint live performance full of musical surprises and endless positive energy.
On the first night of December, the countless festive lights at the Cultural Center give their glow to the plane trees of the Canal and the decorated fir trees of the Agora and a festival of light gives a bright tone to the evening Park Stavros Niarchos. In this dreamy Christmas scene, the members of El Sistema Greece Youth Orchestra and El Sistema Greece Youth Choir, coming from more than 25 countries, meet the explosive Greek band ONIRAMA and their favorite frontman Thodoris Marantinis with the unique stage presence, and together they undertake the musical program of this great celebration, which marks the beginning of the most anticipated festive season and the countdown for the new year.
Favorite Christmas songs -and not only- but also famous international hits associated with the most magical time of the year, will be presented in new, subversive performances. Violins and cellos are mixed with bass and electric guitars, the little ones sing with the older ones, the sounds are mixed with the emotions and the music sounds different, in a concert that will once again confirm that the walls separating the musical genres have fallen for a long time now and that music unites people and makes everything more beautiful – especially on holidays!
Because during the magical Christmas season, anything can happen. Classical music is mixed with Christmas carols and favorite international pop hits in new subversive covers. Violins, cellos, electric guitars and bass do magic, the little ones play with the older ones, the sounds are combined with the emotions and the music sounds different, in a concert that confirms that the walls separating the musical genres have fallen for a long time and that music unites people and makes everything more beautiful – especially on holidays!
