The Cyprus Symphony Orchestra, in collaboration with the Austrian Embassy in Nicosia celebrate 60 years of diplomatic relations between Austria & Cyprus. On this occasion, they will be presenting emblematic music by great composers coming from the two countries.
Under the baton of Günter Neuhold, this beautiful musical synergy features two outstanding lyrical singers, the Austrian baritone Günter Haumer and the Cypriot soprano Zoe Nicolaidou.
