Concerts without Borders
“Music fit for a Queen”
By Chris Elliott…….
Time seems to fly by when you are having fun they say and that reminds me of when Margaret and I went to The Centre of Visual Arts and Research (CVAR), Nicosia to find out more about this incredible place which houses such a wonderful wealth of Cyprus Heritage that needs preservation for future generations to admire.
The purpose of the visit was to meet with an interested group who wanted to help by raising its profile by organising an event Concerts Without Borders and also draw world attention to this fine collection of Cyprus Heritage.
The great news has been received from International soprano and Grammy award nominee Demetra George Mustafaoglu who has been leading the group that are arranging Concerts Without Borders – Music Fit for a Queen and this will be held on Monday 19th September 2016 at 20.00 and we will bring you more news as it arrives.
In the meanwhile I am showing below a brief introduction about the CVAR Center by Margaret and by following the link our readers can appreciate the value of Cyprus Heritage that so many wish to preserve for future generations to admire and enjoy.
By Margaret Sheard….
There is a wonderful museum and research centre located in Ermou Street just across the north/south border of Cyprus that is looking to raise its profile and International soprano and Grammy award nominee Demetra George Mustafaoglu has set herself the task of helping by arranging a concert at The Centre of Visual Arts and Research (CVAR), which is to be held on 19th September 2016.
CVAR will present CONCERTS WITHOUT BORDERS – Music Fit for a Queen on 19th September 2016 with awardees from the US State Department’s Cultural Diplomacy Award, international soprano Demetra George Mustafaoglu, and mezzo soprano Katie Economidou. Joining the group will be well known singer Lenia Kallis from South Cyprus and 10 year old Peri Bektasoglu, a rising star student of Demetra who attends the English School of Kyrenia (ESK).
Upon arrival a welcome complimentary drink will be served to guests. The five star museum restaurant will be open for dinner prior to and post concert time. The concert will start at 8pm and Opera will open the program then head into Broadway, movie songs and ethnic music. You haven’t seen the like of this ever before! Remember 19th September – SAVE THE DATE NOW! Demetra looks forward to seeing you then!
