From Athens to Papua New Guinea, from Kenya to Ukraine and from Slovakia to Tanzania, people from all four corners of the earth unite their voices, become one and interpret songs speaking straight to the heart. This is the power of the GNO Alternative Stage’s Intercultural Choir which continues its multicultural journey through the world’s neighbourhoods. In the third year since its creation, the Intercultural Choir continues to offer unique moments and intense feelings to the audiences, and at the same time a unique experience to its members.
Songs of unpaired melodic richness from the traditional music of the countries of origin of its members constitute the Intercultural Choir’s repertory, which continues to be enriched with new material. Already, the Choir has over 25 members, while the last two years it has conducted workshops in refugee and immigrant accommodation sites as well as in open concerts at Kypseli and Omonia squares, at the Athens Airport and the Summer Nostos Festival of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. The GNO's Alternative Stage, in collaboration with the Learning and Participation department of the Greek National Opera, is inviting permanent and temporary citizens to become members of the Intercultural Choir!
We are looking for amateur and professional musicians, as well as people that love singing without necessarily having previous musical experience.
CHOIR MAESTRO: Vasoula Delli
The Alternative Stage in collaboration with the GNO’s Learning and Participation create a new Intercultural Orchestra.
Permanent or temporary residents of Athens, professional and amateur musicians from all the communities of the city are called upon to participate. The Intercultural Orchestra aspires to bring the universal language of music closer to us and serves as a focal point for getting together and co-existing, fostering, mutual understanding and accepting diversity. The point of reference of this ensemble will be music, which as a universal practice that unites and does not separate, engages in a dialogue and does not force itself, will attempt to open up perspectives, give hope, and mainly, bring forth, understand and accept diversity.
Orchestra Leader: Harris Lambrakis

Migration and displacement hold a central role in shaping identities and histories of peoples living or having lived in the European continent.
Migration journeys are always marked by a loss; leaving most of one’s possessions behind, what one carries is a symbol of the entire experience.
If you have an object that carries a personal or family story?
