Dec 5: Music of the past 100 years with the Kyrenia Chamber Choir in Bellapais


The Centenary Concert for St. Andrew’s Church at the Bellapais Abbey on 5 December


By Heidi Trautmann


A nostalgic and sentimental journey through the last 100 years of music. What are 100 years that we can still remember our favourite songs, songs that accompanied us through our young years. 100 years for St. Andrew’s Church in Kyrenia, a very active community, a social centre.


In Cyprus Observer’s issue No. I have introduced the Kyrenia Chamber choir to you, you can also find the article on my website www.heiditrautmann.com. They have been working very hard this year with two big concerts within two months. But the nearly 30 choir members are very motivated.
