A composer.

Emmanouel Daskalakis

  He was born in Kavala in 1939. His parents taught him the love for the Church of Jesus Christ. Very young, he settled in Thessaloniki with his family. During his high-school years, he began to study Byzantine Music. His first tutor was the theoretician Abraham Euthymiadis in “St. Demetrius” tutorial school.
  In 1956 he met the Great Master, Chief Cantor Mr. Athanasios Karamanis, who catechized him into the patriarchal style. Since 1958 he chants in various churches of Thessaloniki and since 2002 he is First Chanter of the Holy Church of St. George of Panorama. In 1968 he graduated from the “Macedonian Conservatory”. His teachers were A. Karamanis and Ch. Taliadoros. He taught in the Municipal Conservatory of Thessaloniki and in the School of the Arnea Cathedral.
  For quite a while he was broadcasting from one of the State Radio Channels of Thessaloniki. In 1990 he was twice a guest chanter in America. In the last 22 years, thousands of copies of his 10 personal cassettes have been released. Lately, cassettes and CDs of the Byzantine Choir “St. John Koukouzelis” (that Mr. Daskalakis founded and conducts this day) have also been released. In January 1994 Mr. Daskalakis was awarded the golden medal of St. Cyril and Methodius from His Holiness the Metropolite of Thessaloniki, Mr. Panteleimon B', for his contribution to the promotion of Byzantine Music.
  In January 2002 he founded a School for Byzantine Music in the Holy Church of St. John of Panorama. He strongly believes that his young and talented students will go on serving Byzantine Music, this way being his successors.
