Blackboard plus Ichoyennisi

This is a fun afternoon for those wanting to share their love of music and play, sing or recite in an inviting and friendly atmosphere. Put your name on the blackboard to perform, or just get along and listen to some great music.

Feature Act Ichoyennisi

New Greek Ensemble in Canberra.    The Greek term Ηχογέννηση (Ichoyennisi) means “rebirth through Spring” and aptly describes a new collaboration recently formed to present a program of songs by Theodorakis, Hatzidakis, and Xarharkos, as well as some much loved Greek folk instrumental music.
Soloist Theodora Volti breathes new life into these modern classics. Singing in Greek, Theodora communicates the Greek experience through her love of music, language and culture. Theodora is joined by Springtide – Jackie Luke (sandouri), Greg Wilson (harp, accordion) and Rita Woolhouse (cello) and the instrumental expertise of Amanda Pickering (violin), Sandy Gibbney (violin), and Jon Jones (percussion).
Springtide and friends invites you to sample this beautiful music which continues to delight and captivate people the world over.
