Here’s something excellent to do tomorrow, for anyone who may be in the neighbourhood, the news of it passed on by our friend Richard Woods. I have no doubt it will soothe the bruised skies and banish the storm.
The Corfu Chamber Opera is putting on a concert to celebrate the UN International Women’s Day on the 8th of March at the Ionian Academy at 21.00 and tickets will be 10 euros. The concert will comprise music for voice, violin and piano composed by famous women composers such as Clara Schumman, Cecile Chaminade, Fanny Mendelssohn, Pauline Viardot, Amy Beach and Alice Kollias.
The soloists are Rosalinda Poulimenou, soprano with the National Opera and head of Vocal Studies at the Ionian University and Redona Kola, violinist and professor of the Ionian Conservatory and Philharmonic Society. They will be accompanied by Vicky Stylianou, pianist, member of the Orchestra of Colours and professor at the Filippos Nakas Conservatory. This will be a special and not often heard repertoire.
A reading of excerpts from the books by the Corfiot writers Katina Vlachou and Liana Vrachlioti will precede the concert.
