Concert of the Smyrna Women’s Orchestra ‘From Smyrna I come to find consolation’ – Chania 29th July

The Smyrna Women’s Orchestra, which continues the tradition of the great orchestras that flourished in Asia Minor, meets the Greek singer, composer and lyricist Erofili, a performer of notable presence in Greek music both through her personal discography as well as with her collaborations with dozens of performers and creators.
WHEN: 29th July, 21.00
WHERE: Firka Fortress,  Venetian Harbour, Chania

Free entrance.

The aim of this musical performance is to honor the Greek Smyrna and the Asia Minor Greeks, but also to cite tangible evidence of the achievements that result from the peaceful coexistence of different ethno-religious communities. Moments that show the happy days, the beauty and wealth of the city, the affluence of its inhabitants, the civilized face of the extreme eastern European metropolis and not only those photographs that recall the images of destruction and refugees.29 July Smyrna Women's orchestra

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.
