The Cultural Centre Technopolis 20 has a mission: to accommodate all kinds of art, theatre, dance, music, visual arts, cinema and literature. The aim of Technopolis 20 is to promote the classical but also contemporary art, support Cypriot artists and to develop a creative and artistic culture.
With this in mind, the centre has organised yet another event to promote young Cypriot musicians. Two talented music students will perform a piano and saxophone recital on August 29.
