The Vault Performance Space and Greek Bilingual Bookshop at 837 New Canterbury Road, Dulwich Hill, presents an illustrated talk on
ANCIENT GREEK MUSIC TODAY
by Dr Alfred Vincent,
on Saturday 23 August 2014 at 7 for 7.30 pm
with live performance by Kiriaki and Dimitris Koubaroulis.
In ancient times, as now, Greece was a land of music. Greeks sang and played instruments at religious ceremonies, in the theatres, at social gatherings, and to accompany everyday activities. But, of course, they left no sound recordings. So what do we know about ancient music? How do modern musicians read and interpret the surviving ancient melodies?
The talk, in English, will be illustrated by coloured slides and samples of ancient music performed live and on CD.
Join in a 2000-year-old song at the end!
Entry: $10 at the door. Nibbles included. Café open before the talk.
