The great singer Alcestis Protopsalti and the musician-composer Stephen Korkolis traveled to Istanbul, where they presented a musical performance titled ‘ One Piano, One Voice” in Halik Congress Centre.
The concert which was originally planned for the 22th of October, 2011, at the celebration of 20 years since Patriarch Bartholomew’s accession to the Ecumenical Throne, was cancelled due to urgent incidents, but finally took place the day of the “Feast of Orthodoxy” during the annual musical event presented in the Ecumenical Patriarchy.
The Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew honored the event with his presence. Other hierarchs of the Throne, Ambassador Chrisanthopoylos, the Greek Consul General in Istanbul, and Nikos Mathioydakis, along with a great number of compatriots and visitors numbering over 700 attended the concert. The two artists overwhelmed the audience with their performance and gained their applause.
The Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew spoke at the end of the concert and referred to the triumph of Orthodoxy and the symbolism of the Feast. He also warmly thanked the two well-known artists and everyone in charge of the event planning.
The event was sponsored by Olympic Airlines and Halik Kongre Markezi.
