The Greek Chamber Music Project (GCMP) is an arts presenter and record label devoted to the music of Greek composers, shedding light on little-known chamber music works, as well as revisiting popular songs in a fresh way.
GCMP’s concerts of all-Greek works are so unique, that similar programs are rarely performed even within Greece. As a record label, it has several releases to its name, including “Hellenic Song: A Musical Migration” and “The Moon is Red: A Tribute to Manos Hadjidakis,” which feature a diverse selection of classical works and reimagined popular songs for piano, flute, violin, and voice.
Past performance venues have included the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and the Hellenic Center in Washington, D.C., the Hellenic Community of Vancouver (Canada), as well as Kerrytown Concert House (Ann Arbor, Michigan). GCMP has collaborated with the Embassy of Greece in the United States and has received support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the University of Michigan, San Francisco State University, and Hellenic Society Prometheas.
“The accomplished musicians’ dynamic and powerful performance stirred the imagination and fed the souls” – Hellenic Society Prometheas Newsletter, by Patty Apostolides, July 2014
“[Chamber music] may conjure different images to different people, but music of the Greek Chamber Music Project will transport you to another place, and time. For me, it took me seaside. The beautifully arranged pieces bring nostalgic thoughts of Greece. The works mirror life: at once calm and peaceful, then a bit moody, but we’re always brought back to that peaceful, beautiful time.” – Windy City Greek, by Maria Karamitsos, September 28, 2015
