Tel: +30 22460 72444
Symi Festival is organised every summer for the last nine years. The idea is based
in the disenterested participation of artists and organisers. There is neither
ticket in the cultural events nor payment for the artists. The Town Hall covers
the expenses of going and stay of the participants. Symi's Festival has to do
with several cultural activities like classical and modern music concerts, dance,
thetre, cinema, literature evenings, conferences. All these manifestations take
place in buildings with traditional architecture of 17th, 18th, 19th century like
the famous manor house of Chatziagapitos, the courtyard of Saint John and the
monastery of Panormitis. This year our festival is dedicated to athleticism and
to the Olympic Games of Athens 2004. Symi’s Festival popularity has attracted
famous artists to participate like Nana Mouschouri, Leonidas Kavakos, Lavredis
Machairitsas, Stavros Xarhakos, Thanos Mikroutsikos, Dimitra Galani, Maria Faradouri,
Stefanos Korkolis, Orchestre of Moscow. Symi has also put up with important conferences
such as Emigrant Hellenism, Neoclassical Architecture, Litterature of Emigrant
Hellenism, Health Nursing in small islands of south Aegean.
