Yorgos Perot is the founder and coordinator of the Greek Network of European Music Day:
“We mix harmoniously, our heritage and this exceptional music. The program is a musical combination of different periods. There is also nature. It is a unique opportunity for Greeks to promote all these elements at the same time.”
The concert was held in a unique environment thanks to the Ephorate of Antiquities of East Attica.
