A 261st birthday concert for the composer is also slated for Friday January 27 at the Famagusta Gate in South Nicosia.
Organised under the auspices of the Australian Embassy and Nicosia Municipality, the 8.30pm concert features the Flautissimo Flute Choir of Limassol, Bulgarian harpist Angela Majdarova and Vienna-based Cypriot soprano Chryso Makariou. Tickets are priced at 15 euros for adults and 10 euros for children.
