Athenean Mandolinata & friends
2014 - 15 concerts

The Athenean Mandolinata orchestra's goal being both the dissemination of the historical heritage of original works of Greek and foreign composers and the encouragement and promotion of contemporary creation, it organises a series of concerts in the season 2014 - 15 as well as mandolin seminars in collaboration with Ugo Orlandi, in order to familiarise its members with a broader repertoire of the instrument.

The Orchestra has participated in "Antanaclasis" Festival at Gryparion Cultural Center of Mykonos, in "Sinfonia Piraeus" Festival at Piraeus Municipal Theater, and frequently performs as a residence orchestra at Literary Society "Parnassus" Hall.

In a recent cultural exchange with Orchestra di mandolini e chitarre "Citta di Brescia", under Claudio Mandonico's conducting, they recorded together an album entitled "Greek Rhapsody" (to be released), which has been a tribute to the "Athenian Mandolinata" and its conductor N. Lavdas, as well as to selected works of foreign composers with Greek themes.
