Everyone enjoyed the concert.

The concert was organised by Encore Productions by Pambris Bros and the Greek Festival of Sydney, and saw generations of Greeks – from the youth to the elderly – gather to witness Dalaras perform his musical magic.

George Dalaras gave a spectacular performance.

True to form, the charismatic Greek singer had the audience singing loudly and in unison along with some of his classics including Pou ‘Nai Ta Chronia.

Rising music stars, Aspasia Stratigou and Alexandros Tzouganakis, drew applause with their supporting performances.
