Αs part of its educational mission, the Greek National Opera Children’s Chorus proposes a programme that starts with the traditional song “Menexedes ke zoumboulia” (Violets and Hyacinths), passes through Greek art song “Mia Panagia” (A Mother Mary, by N. Gatsos) and ends with Schubert’s Seligkeit (Bliss) and Beethoven’s An die Freude (Ode to Joy), under the musical direction of Konstantina Pitsiakou.

More than 60 children of the GNO Children’s Chorus perform and record the concert’s songs from their homes under the guidance of Konstantina Pitsiakou. With the help of mobile phones, tablets and computers, this online concert with children’s voices will offer a much-needed note of optimism and a melodious exit from spring to summer.
