Social Paediatric Friends Association "ANOIXTI AGALIA"present at Odeon of Herodus Atticus Vasilis Papakonstantinou in the concert "Thelei aretin kai tolmin I eleftheria''. A tribute to Mikis Theodorakis, with "Mikis Theodorakis" Popular Orchestra
and the participation of Sofia Papazoglou & Betty Ηarlafti.Under the title "Thelei aretin kai tolmin I eleftheria" (English translation: "Freedom needs virtue and mettle"), inspired by the timeless verse of Greek poet Andreas Kalvos, a music trip begins with the best loved and popular Mikis Theodorakis's songs, with the personal supervision and care by the world renowned composer himself.

Forty years after Vasilis Papakonstantinou's first acquaintance with Mikis Theodorakis in Paris, which actually led to the official beginning of their close collaboration in 1976, the famous singer and concert performer -characterized by youthful intensity, mature tenderness and a distinctive rock style- joins live on stage the 10-member Mikis Theodorakis Popular Orchestra (founded in May 1997): an event-concert with social sensitivity, an evening full of Greece, free-thinking spirit, energy, pathos, vigor, nostalgic and contemporary mood.

This fund-raising event is organized by the Social Paediatric Friends Association ‘ANOIXTI AGALIA',
and held under the auspices of the Athens General Children's Hospital "P. & A. Kyriakou". The money raised will be donated for the improvement of the mechanical support equipment at the Premature Infants Unit / General Children's Hospital ‘'P. & A. Kyriakou".

Get prepared for a concert that brings together two well-known Greek artists who have been inspiring for many decades a lot of generations, through their important work that boldly combines a variety of music genres. It is a concert that offers young people the rare opportunity to learn, feel, think and hear - as Theodorakis says - not only with their ears, but also with their imagination.
