Big and small children, performers, five composers, a writer, a director, and a narrator will sing old and new Christmas and New Year’s carols.
Forerunners of good news, of celebrations and holidays, carols are a custom deeply rooted in our cultural consciousness.
After ‘Turning World Myths into Songs for Children’, the Hellenic Project invites you to another special concert that bears elements of theatre. Composers will write new carols and will ‘play’ with old ones. They will sing about Christmas and the New Year, reflecting on the past but also putting forth the way they view this particular genre at present.
