Syros Accordeon Festival 2018

 

For the seventh consecutive year, the Syros Accordion Festival took place and offered an exemplary musical experience to the visitors of Syros island. By combining two of the most popular music genres, “Zonaradiko” that originates from Thrace in Northern Greece, and “Tarantella” from Southern Italy, accordionists met on Syros and celebrated their passion for music.

The festival is organized by “Syros Accordion Group”,  a group of professional and amateur musicians, united by their love for the accordion. They were formed in 2012 to realize a mutual dream, to establish a music festival that celebrated the accordion, in all its diversity and tradition. They achieved that goal and the Syros Accordion Festival was a great success both in 2012 and 2013, growing in reputation and size each year. Since 2014, the “Syros Accordion Group” works in co-operation with the non-profit organization “Ourios Anemos“, for the organizing of the Festival. Their aim is to continue to build on the success of the previous festivals and to attract an even greater audience from all over Greece and abroad.

Throughout the 7th Syros Accordion Festival, various events took place including unique accordion concerts and recitals, children’s workshops, dancing events, daily seminars led by renowned teachers, an exhibition for the accordion music as well as a maintenance-repair workshop for accordion and percussion.
