A Byzantine Christmas
December 17, 2022 from 7:30 pm - 9:30 pmFree
Dormition of the Virgin Mary Greek Orthodox Church will present Psaltikon’s A Byzantine Christmas in the newly-renovated church 7:30pm Saturday, December 17, 2022. Admission is free to the public; a freewill offering will benefit Philoxenia House, a ministry of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Boston that hosts individuals coming to Boston for medical care.
Mr. and Mrs. Nick and Helen Boulas have made the performance possible through their generous sponsorship. The Dormition Parish Council and St. Catherine’s Philoptochos Society are co-sponsors. The parish council will sponsor a wine and cheese reception for all attendees following the performance.
With its origins as a collaboration with Cambridge’s Greek Institute, A Byzantine Christmas has grown into a staple of the Boston-area holiday concert scene. Now in its twelfth year, internationally-recognized performer and scholar Dr. Spyridon Antonopoulos leads Psaltikon, joined by acclaimed musicians from New England and Greece, in a performance of Byzantine chant from the Christmas season, the joyous kalanda (carols) from various regions of Greece, and Christmas readings by Modern Greek authors.
