A volunteer’s experience, by Michael Gale

As well as the regular music and dance which happens here at the village square in Kissos, Sabine and I were excited to be taken to the neighboring village of Tsagarada for a concert performed by the string quartet “Fauves”.

Playing beneath the incredible massive plane tree known as Agia Paraskeri in the village square, the quartet performed an experimental piece which was composed as a dialogue with the tree.  This was followed by a Schubert piece “Death and the Maiden”.

This performance unfolded beautifully before us.  We sat amongst a large appreciative crowd within the unique atmosphere of this medieval village.  We sipped drinks and watched children play, above us the canopy of leaves of the historic central piece, the tree of Agia Paraskeri.
