The Music Studies Department of the Ionian University is this year celebrating its fifteen years of fruitful and creative contribution to university level music education in Greece.
What better way to celebrate this important mark in the department’s progress than a Music Festival. From June 1st to June 9th the department’s potential will outline the persistent and arduous work which has been done these fifteen years in a series of events, concerts and a conference.
The rich, high-level and yet attractive programme which will be presented highlights the special traits of a Music Department which simultaneously offers the programme and the substructure of a musical academy combined with the comprehensiveness of a university.
We want to celebrate the department’s course up to this point with our fellow citizens and reaffirm the vigour, the constant evolution and the future prospects of this path.
