View Website

Greek, New York based composer and performer Pericles Kanaris returns to his New York residency at Drom with 3 concerts for the Spring and Summer seasons. The theme for the new performances is entitled "Road to Athens", as the New York series will culminate in a concert at the prestigious NOSTOS Summer Festival at the Stavros Niarchos Cultural Center in Athens, Greece on June 30th. Pericles Kanaris calls this "a milestone for his career" as he will focus on new, original music and present material from two collections of songs. One collection is inspired by classic poets such as Constantine P. Kavafy and T.S Eliot and the other by unreleased material from contemporary poets, such as Manos Eleftheriou and the younger generation of Greek poets. The repertoire will also include songs from other Greek and international artists who have inspired the composer over the years and will be presented with his own, signature orchestrations.
