The barrel organ or laterna, a cranked, portable answer to the player piano, once tinkled and buzzed on many Greek streetcorners. Now the laterna is landing for the first time in the US, brought by Greek-American singer and songwriter Magda Giannikou. Popular Greek songs and vintage dance ditties will roll out of this traditionally open-air instrument, giving listeners a chance to hear this music the way it was heard for more than a century.
Venue Description: The world's leading performing arts center and home to the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the Film Society of Lincoln Center, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Juilliard School, Lincoln Center Theater, the Metropolitan Opera, New York City Ballet, New York City Opera, New York Philharmonic, the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, and the School of American Ballet.
