All-Day Solidarity Concert in Nicosia South at the Constanza Moat
The Concert is an idea that was born and implemented in record time, at no
cost, thanks to the selfless participation of individuals and ensembles who
responded to our invitation without a second thought. The idea behind it is to
convey an optimistic message for the future: together we can do better.
In the last few days we have experienced a cold shower, and lived through
intense emotions and rapid, successive reversals. The sole thing of which we
were certain was the uncertainty facing us. The widespread feeling of
frustration and false expectations was the common denominator that brought
together a group of actors and other friends who decided to put up a practical
demonstration of our resistance against what is forthcoming. Partly because of
necessity, partly because of the need for unity and for solidarity, partly
because of the need for a united, strong, common and apolitical voice to be
heard by the outside world. In claiming our dignity we have united our voices,
drawn strength from each other, regardless of the issues that may divide us, in
order to overcome together the difficulties ahead.
From 4 pm until midnight on 1 April, about 50 artists from different musical
backgrounds, from Cyprus and Greece, will unite their voices and their art in a
way that only the language of music knows how to unite, to express in their own
way their practical support to the people of our country.
Your support for this initiative will serve to convey to the outside world a
resounding message of our solidarity. There is no financial cost to attend the
concert, but participants will be asked to make only a contribution in kind,
such as food, medicines and other basic items, which will be distributed to
individuals, families and other groups who have an immediate need.
