Greece is a country of immense interests, diverse cultures, and tremendous history. The people, literature, art, architecture, politics, music, traditions, language, beliefs, food, and customs- the history of all these aspects of Greece at once dominated the known world, and to this day still fascinate the imagination.
The people of Greece speak of their country with intense passion, born from a great pride in this history.
Music is an integral part of Greek culture, and is as rich in diversity as its history. Greek music may best be broadly categorized by its traditional folk music, and by the music of the Byzantine period. Derived from ancient times, traditional Greek music is highly expressive and melodious, and in many ways originated as accompaniment to Greek theater. Greek music from Byzantine times was associated with the sacred chants of Christianity, and is distinguished by its modality.
Imagine your group performing at one of the great archaeological sites of Ancient Greece! Many churches, cathedrals, theaters and concert halls also await visiting ensembles that participate in the American Celebration of Music!
The support and guidance of the MCI team was outstanding in every way. We traveled with 90 students and chaperones and everyone felt special and attended to. They made us feel like we were their only clients and that certainly makes me want to continue to use them for all of my International tours in the future!
