The Herod Atticus Odeon, at the foot of the Acropolis in central Athens, will be the venue for a concert by noted Greek composer and performer Dionyssis Savvopoulos on Sept. 25, an event benefiting the scholarship fund of the distinguished Arsakeio-Tositsia School system.
The aforementioned academic institutions are part of the Athens-based Filekpaideftiki Society, founded in 1836 as a public non-profit benefit foundation ( <>).
Linguist, literature professor and former University of Athens rector Giorgos Babiniotis, president of Filekpaideftiki Society for the past 25 years, spoke to ANA-MPA on the occasion of the concert.
Babiniotis underlined that cooperation with Savvopoulos was not random, stressing that it was a decision made based on its educational properties. He also said that Savvopoulos has worked on ancient Athenian playwright Aristophanes’ comedies “Acharnenses” and “Plutus” and that the school’s 200-member choir will also perform during the concert.
