We are very pleased to be associated with the North American Foundation
for Modem Greek Arts in this special tribute to Mikis Theodorakis, Greece's
leading composer and great ambassador of Greek culture.
Inextricably tied with his land, Mikis Theodorakis has conquered
the hearts of Greece and the rest of the world with a varied repertoire
bearing a unique musical language and expressive power, some of which we
are happy to present to you this evening.
We also salute Mr. Theodorakis for his lifelong dedication to Greek
arts and culture, as weIl as his very courageous standpoint at times of
political crisis in Greece.
I hope you will enjoy this special concert and wish you very happy
memories of Greece!
