Last week we had a very enjoyable evening in Parikia at a concert with six different choirs--with emphasis on different.
It started with very young children who managed to produce good harmony and then progressed to a youth choir who had recently won Second Place at a national competition in Athens. You could certainly tell they were good.
We also heard from two adult groups that sang traditional Greek folk songs and one from the Ekatontapiliani Church that made us feel like we were attending a service there.
These groups were all from Paros. The sixth group was from the Aegean Center for the Arts; it includes Parians and visiting students. They were very accomplished.
This photo is the only one that I could stand up to take. All the others were too full of the bald head sitting in front of me. It is of the five Greek choirs on stage for a grand finale.
