“Orchestra 4 All 4 – Kiki in America” in all cities from May 21 till May 29

The Cyprus Symphony Orchestra collaborates with music pedagogue Christina Charalambidou to present the symphonic version of the musical story “Kiki in America” in five unique performances! The protagonist of the story is an adventurous chicklet named Kiki, which will come to life through storytelling, projected illustrations and live music.

Kiki makes a journey in America which starts from San Francisco, passes through the Grand Canyon and ends in New York City – the “Big Apple”! During her trip, Kiki will discover music by American and European composers inspired by the natural beauty of America, melodies of Native Americans and Afroamericans, Latin music and Jazz.
