A wonderful concert at St. George (Old Fortress)

  Last weekend, there was an interesting concert given by the symphonic orchestra and the vocal ensemble of the Ionian University inside the church of St. George in Old Fortress. The church is hosting some classical music concerts, being somewhat like our version of St. Martin-in-the-fields. The soloists, the choir and the orchestra performed a diverse repertoire ranging from early baroque to modern atonic music.

  Here is a video with the "Gloria" part from Mozart's Coronation mass. 

  I consider myself lucky having the chance to participate or simply attend concerts like this - Corfu has long music tradition in music - local people are obliged to protect and preserve this long tradition and support it by participating in the concerts given by our musical institutions.
