Nana Mouskouri

A Myth to be Told

Nana Mouskouri began her singing career in Greece over 60 years ago and went on to become a world-famous star. The artist has given over 10,000 performances at some of the most prestigious venues in the world, from the Paris Opera, the Royal Albert Hall and the Berlin Philharmonic to Lincoln Center (New York), the Sydney Opera and Teatro Monumental in Chile, and even theatres and stages in towns and villages around the world. At Athens Festival 2018, the celebrated artist will perform some of her best-known songs, including “Chartino to fengaraki” and international hits, such as “White Rose of Athens,” “Α force de prier,” “Au Cœur de septembre” and “Le temps des cerises.” Part of the proceeds will be donated to ELPIDA – Association of Friends of Children with Cancer. Mouskouri  has been active in the organization since its inception in 1990. In 2017, she was named “Artist for ELPIDA.” The concert will be held under the auspices of H.E. the President of Hellenic Republic Mr. Prokopios Pavlopoulos.
