Embark on a unique journey in ancient Greek mythology and music, with Theodore and SEIKILO’s award-winning tour “Experience Ancient Greece”, where you will have the chance to learn, take a closer look, or even play with many ancient Greek music instruments such as the lyre of Hermes, the barbiton of Sappho, the pandura, the Cithara of the Golden Age, the Phorminx of Homer, the Tympanon of Dionysus, etc. What’s more, a professional lyricist will perform live for you, while sharing surprisingly interesting details about Hermes, Apollo, Zeus, Plato, etc. At last, we are going to see and play with ancient Greek board games, the very same that Alexander the Great, Achilles and other great generals used to play in order to practice their critical thinking!
Theodore Koumartzis is an astounding musician of the ancient lyre and the visionary behind our award-winning tour. He is also a member of the luthier’s family and the niche music brand Luthieros, responsible for the construction of all these musical instruments! Theodore constantly travels around the world, giving lectures, live performances and interactive tours in museums and educational institutes in Greek, English, and Spanish!
Our meeting spot is at SEIKILO Cultural Space (Vasileos Irakleiou 4), at the very center of Thessaloniki. Just a 5 minutes walk from the famous Aristotelous Square!
This experience is for anyone interested in ancient Greek civilization, music, and mythology! This experience can be tailored to your level of knowledge, so let us know if you are an amateur or a professional musician!
