Classical music buffs, Athens City Festival got you covered, with the introduction of the Athens Municipality Symphony Orchestra’s new talents. On the 21st, virtuoso violinist Christoforos Petridis performs the Jean Sibelius Violin Concerto. Hungarian Dance no. 1 by Johannes Brahms and Symphony no. 7 by Antonín Dvořák complete the evening. And, on the 28th, the spotlight is on guitarist Antigone Baxé who performs the emblematic Malcolm Arnold Concerto for guitar and chamber orchestra Op. 67 (1959). Antonín Dvořák’s Symphony No.8 G major Op.88 wraps up the event, for a taste of our city orchestra’s emerging talents. This is also an excellent opportunity to visit the historical building that houses the Municipal Music Theatre Maria Callas.
