The Concert Hall is celebrating its twentieth anniversary with a series of events scheduled throughout the year.

The programme begins in March with the exhibition Maria Callas and La Scala, opening on 9 March and running until 8 May.

On 19 March Yannis Vakarelis will be performing with three young soloists – Konstantinos Valianatos, Areti Zoula and Loukia Loulaki – in a programme of works by Shostakovich, Brahms and Mendelssohn.

The next event will be an appearance by the renowned Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, conducted by Antonio Pappano and performing works by Verdi, Liszt, Mahler, Rossini, Rachmaninov and Respighi. The piano soloist will be Boris Berezovsky, one of the true heirs to the tradition of the great Russian pianists (21 and 22 March).

On 27 March Leonidas Kavakos will be presenting a programme of chamber music with cellist Gautier Capucon and pianist Nicholas Angelich, while on 30 March Dimitris Sgouros will perform piano works by Schumann and Liszt.

On 2 April, ten winners of Maria Callas and Alexandra Trianti Scholarships, who have gone on to build successful careers in Greece and abroad, will return to the Christos Lambrakis Hall to perform arias and ensemble scenes from operas produced at the Concert Hall over the last twenty years.

On 21 June the Concert Hall will be marking Music Day with orchestral performances in the gardens, followed by a party later the same evening.
