And finally, music is a vital part of our events.
The OTE Choir of Thessaloniki sings “Tsamikos”, with lyrics by Gatsos and Hatzidakis, and “To Harama Epira”, with lyrics by Solomos and music by Leontis. These choral works will be included in the programme of events of the Region of Central Macedonia, and you can enjoy them on our website.
