21:00: Underground Youth Orchestra performing works of Antonio Vivaldi, Dmitri Shostakovich, Leonard Bernstein, Nicola Piovani and more
The Underground Υouth Orchestra was founded in 2010. It started as a group of children that just wanted to meet and play music together. The rehearsals were taking place in an underground basement (hence its name!) and during the first years the concerts had an educational character. Quite soon though, the group started achieving distinctions, participating in festivals, giving concerts, gaining music lovers. Today the orchestra comprises 45 music students, aged 10-24 years, and is completed by four professional musicians, Efstathia Papageorgopoulou, Franc Shestani, Antonela Cefa and Oswald Amiralis, who are involved in the orchestra’ s organization and education. Costas Eliades is the artistic director, conductor and arranger of UYO.
So far, UYO has given more than 40 concerts across Greece and abroad and has so far collaborated with Maria Farantouri and Dimitra Galani, while also collaborates regularly with Elly Paspala. In 2015 UYO released its first CD entitled “THE UNDERGROUND YOUTH ORCHESTRA LIVE” including live recordings from its concerts.
