Poet Cavafy Travels Around the World

On Friday, Greeks of Metropolitan New York will be able to watch a music and poetry related play, by the team called “Cavafy” from the cultural society of Ano Syros in Greece. The play is titled “Music and Poetry”.

It is about a play being performed for the last five years and is considered to be the most completed approach to Cavafy’s work, since there is a combination of poems’s recitation and music played by a multiple-membered orchestra.

The initiator of the team is Mpampis Koulouras, president of the cultural society of Ano Syros. As he has written on the website of the society, he was born in 1947 in the island of Syros and since childhood has adored Cavafy’s poetry.

The performance will be held on Friday, 7th October in collaboration with the cultural commitee of the Federation of Hellenic American Societies of New England, at Stathakion Centre. Babis Koulouras will recitate poems of Cavafy, while 11 songs will be played, composed by musicians such as Chatzidakis, Mikroutsikos, Moutsis, Malamas, Nikolopoulou, Rempoutsika and Koulouras.

On Saturday at 8:00 pm, the cultural commitee of the Federation of Hellenic American Societies of New England organizes a reception with a traditional orchestra of 10 members of the Cultural Society of Ano Syros.
