Christmas, and “Rejoice and be glad”… With well-known classical and traditional pieces, of both religious and secular character, the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra prepares us for this great feast of Christianity less than a week before the joyous news of the Divine Birth. With the participation of soprano Vassiliki Karagianni and the Nicosia Music Lyceum Choir, which never fails to impress with its interpretations and discipline, come and celebrate with us, albeit a few days early, the birth of God the Man to the tune of popular melodies. And maybe, just maybe, some may hear and take to heart the wish which we’ re sure is playing in the minds of all of us these days: “… peace on Earth, and goodwill to mankind”!
