As usual the summer Paros Life is chock-a-block full of music concerts and art events. One that did not make the listing deadline has an Oregon connection. Also it is coming to Paros at the instigation of our American friends of Scooter Rally fame, Al and Ardy.
The Cappella Romana from our home city of Portland, Oregon is celebrating its 20th Anniversary by singing at the Patmos Sacred Music Festival and on Paros at the Church of Panagia Ekatontapilliani which is one of the oldest and most important churches in Greece.
The group will sing music ranging from Medieval Byzantine chants to modern choral works by Californian Greek composers, including rhapsodic works by modern Greek composer Michael Adamis. The Paros concert on 5 September at 8:30 P.M. will be recorded by a Grammy winning record producer.
We are really looking forward to this event. The first concert that I attended on Paros was held in the courtyard of Ekatontapilliani and I still remember the magic.
