Chamber music concert – full moon concert: Rokka 22nd August

One of the highlights and also the last performance of this year’s Rokka Rock Festival will be held this Sunday, 22nd August at 8.30 pm at the archeological site of the beautiful village Rokka

As the leaflet says: the visitor will be carried away by the sounds of the solo classical Cretan lyra, in renaissance and baroque sound. Thesis Trio presents a concert that unites yesterday with today. The beginning of vocal art in Western European music, with vocal pieces by contemporary Greek composers. Yiorgos Kaloudis integrates the classical Cretan lyra and the cello in the repertoire.

Moreover, like every year, the last concert is held during the August full moon, which will add to the already magical atmosphere.

Lydia

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And six years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
