Cantata Evening

“Tonight my guitar sounds”

Start  9 P.M.

 

The brothers Spyros and Makis Karaviotis (tenor secundus) with their guitars and the baritone Leonidas Andipas, who come from the homeland of Greek bel canto on Kefalonia, take us on a musical journey to the three-part Ionic and Attic cantatas.

The melodious voices of the singers together with their guitars convey in a special way a historical review of the essence of the cantatas, starting with the Ionic love songs followed by those from Athens and the popular songs of wine and taverns. . We will hear such well-known songs as “Απόψε την κιθάρα μου, Εισ τον αφρό τησ θάλαςςασ, Κελαηδήςτε ωραία μου πουλάκια, Παλιά ταβερνα, Εγω θα κόψω το κραςί, κ.ά.”  (Tonight my guitar sounds, In the sea foam, Chirp beautifully my little bird, I have to stop with the wine, etc.).

The concert will be performed by the excellent vocal trio with the brothers Karaviotis (vocals – guitars) and the baritone Leonidas Andipas.

Duration of the concert with intermission 2 hours

About Kalolimano

 

Kalolimano means “good harbor”. This is how we feel about our family holiday resort. It serves our large family and friends as a place of relaxation, joy and communication.

For the architectural and artistic planning of the entire complex, we were able to win over our friend Konstantinos Ioannis Papatheodorou, the architect who also created the famous Aghia Fotini church in Ancient Mantinea, near Tripoli.

We started building the holiday resort in spring 2004 and in July 2005 we could move in. The outdoor facilities were designed in the following years, and so the park-like complex with a theater, a pavilion, a temple and a piano house was built.

The work was carried out almost exclusively by workers from Xiropigado. With only very few exceptions, the stones used for the construction were found on the property. The general contractor was the planning office Karachalios from Astros.

Originally, the theater was only intended as a place for the family to gather in the evenings to play, play music and sing. Soon, however, the idea arose to organize concerts for all music lovers in the surrounding area. This is how the annual “International Summer Concerts Xiropigado” were established. We also understand this as a way of saying thanks for having the opportunity to live in this beautiful and hospitable country.
