Musicians with a global career, coming from 14 countries of the world, saw the “Evmelia” Festival, already in the first year of its accomplishment, very seriously. The Festival organized 8 concerts during 10 days with tremendous success: solo recitals, chamber music concerts and an orchestral concert. 4 famous music documentaries have been broadcasted to the frames of the Festival.
Every year a composer with an international reputation will be the Festival’s composer-in-residence; some of the most representative works of this composer will be performed. Evmelia's 2012 composer-in-residence was the great Greek-New Zealander composer John Psathas, who attended in person the ceremony concert dedicated to his works, as well as the broadcasting of the famous documentary "View from Olympus - A portrait of John Psathas, Composer", which has been presented in Greece for the first time.
All the concerts have been streamed live online for the first time in Greece, in order that the international audiences hear directly the voice of the “Evmelia” Festival.
