Despite the weather still being a bit grey, Paphos aims to bring brighter days to the town with a series of concerts taking place under the auspices of the Spring Music Festival. Organised by the very active Paphos Music Lovers Association, who spearhead a large part of the town’s live music scene, the festival is set to entertain throughout April and May.
Polis Charalambou will be the first musician to take the stage as part of the festival, with his ‘Guitar Unplugged’ concert taking place on April 21 at Coral Star in Peyia. The next concert focuses on another set of instruments; the oboe, the piano and the voice. Soprano Tina Chester will perform with Klaus Storm on the oboe and Natalia Lezedova on the piano on April 29 at Aspa Vasiliou’s music studio.
Going into May, Vanessa Megalemou, Andreas Michalopoulos and the Ergo Sum ensemble will bring their now-well-known Edith Piaf Soiree, which they’ve performed extensively around the island in sold-out shows. La Scala de Paphos will host the performance on May 2.
Next up will be Anita Tomasevich in a piano recital on May 8 at another beloved music venue in Paphos, Technopolis 20. The Spring Music Festival will close on May 11 with the Droushia Dixie 7 jazz band at Drousia Darcy’s, which will be a night of uplifting music, fun and food. A raffle with valuable prizes is also set to be part of the evening.
