This year, the organisers have prepared a special programme to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the largest Byzantine music event in the country. Mr Panagiotis Neochoritis, the Archon Protopsaltis of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople and his team of musicians, Assoc. Prof. Maria Alexandru and the Paleography Team of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, as well as other surprise guests, are the highlights of the programme. The 10th Anniversary Edition is dedicated to the personality that founded the Masterclass project in Iasi, Lykourgos Angelopoulos († 2014) – the Maestro, Master and Man.

‘Byzantion’ choir gave concerts in Estonia On the 1st and 2nd of Februry 2017, members of the ‘Byzantion’ Choir gave two concerts of Psaltic music in Estonia (Tallinn and Pärnu) titled ‘Voices of the Byzantine Empire’, upon the invitation of the ‘Eesti Kontsert’ foundation. Whereas the previous editions brought on the great stages of Estonia choirs from Georgia, Egypt, Greece or Armenia, this year it was Romania’s turn to showcase its matchless treasure of Psaltic Art.
