Choir Director Vasiliki Anastasiou to Lead Amalgamation Choir at Westminster Abbey
We are thrilled to announce that Vasiliki Anastasiou, our Choir Director, will lead her Amalgamation Choir at Westminster Abbey on Monday, 13/3, to represent Cyprus at the Commonwealth Day Celebrations in London.
The performance will be broadcasted live on the BBC Youtube channel, starting at 16:15 Cyprus time on Monday.
The choir's participation in this prestigious annual Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey is a testament to their talent and dedication. The performance will occur before The King, the King's Consort, and a distinguished guest list, including senior politicians and dignitaries across the UK and the Commonwealth.
With the theme of 'Forging a Sustainable and Peaceful Common Future', the choir is honoured to have the opportunity to showcase the unique sounds and colours of our local culture through the power of the female voice.
In a statement on their Facebook page, they wanted to extend their sincerest thanks to the Commonwealth Royal Society for the invitation, as well as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Cultural Services of Cyprus, the Stelios Hadjioannou Foundation, the Cypriot Handicraft Service, the A.G. Leventis Foundation, and the Cyprus Youth Symphony Orchestra for their invaluable contributions. The choir expressed their excitement to take the stage and share their passion for music with the world. They urged everyone to tune in to the live broadcast on the BBC and join them in celebrating this incredible event.
