In 2019, our students were privileged to perform with internationally acclaimed Greek artist Dimitris Basis in the concert, Byzantium to Zorba, A Musical Odyssey. Basis was so inspired and moved after working with Emlyn Lewis-Jones and our students that he expressed…. this concert will always be embedded in my heart and soul as one of the most significant experiences I have had in my professional career.

This year, Dimitri has asked to once again perform with our music students as part of the 39th Greek Festival of Sydney as it celebrates the 200 year anniversary of Greece’s declaration of independence from the Ottomans. As this is a public event, we advise that you secure your tickets early
