The Christmas World of the SNFCC
comes to life on December 1st
with the orchestra and choir of El Sistema Greece,
and the bright memories of the visitors

On Wednesday, December 1st at 19.00, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) is transformed once again into the most enchanting Christmas destination of the city.
On the first night of December, the countless festive lights come on, giving their glow to the plane trees of the Canal and the decorated firs of the Agora. A festival of light gives a bright tone to the evening Park Stavros Niarchos: three Bright Installations of distinguished artists from abroad and a Greek participation captivate the eyes creating a special festive atmosphere that will be the backdrop of our Christmas memories. Even the Fountains in the Canal participate in the spectacle in their own spectacular way!
This special night marks the beginning of the Christmas World of the SNFCC, which takes place thanks to the donation of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (ISN). The host of the celebration, Dimitris Kouroumbalis, after the countdown for the lighting, shares with the people in the Agora the festive memories of the visitors of the SNFCC: the first figures at the Ice Rink, a hot chocolate at the Lighthouse in Athens overlooking the lighthouse decorated canals of the Canal, photos full of smiles in the bright facilities of Stavros Niarchos Park, colorful balloons in the Agora, “bright memories” from previous Christmas at the SNFCC that will be shared by visitors (captured in photo, video or text) through Instagram @SNFCC will be broadcast live during the celebration.
And all this, as every year, to the sounds of music, after the celebration is completed by a special artistic collaboration of the multicultural symphony orchestra and youth choir of El Sistema Greece with ONIRAMA, the explosive band with the unique stage presence of their frontman, Theodore Marantine.
In a subversive joint appearance, they present favorite Christmas songs – and not only -, but also international hits connected with the most enchanting season of the year, in new, exciting performances.
The social music education program El Sistema Greece offers free music education to children and young people in order to create a community with a core of music, without restrictions and discrimination. Since the beginning of its operation, the SNFCC has supported the organization and has repeatedly hosted El Sistema Greece students from more than 25 countries, giving them the opportunity to participate in high-level concerts, gaining valuable musical experiences.
Authentic, modern and full of positive energy, ONIRAMA stand out for their impressive live and timeless successes that have established them as one of the most successful and long-lasting bands in Greece and Cyprus. Subversive as always, this year they have caused a special sensation with their original collaborations with favorite artists, such as Haris Alexiou, Lavrentis Machairitsas, Dionysis Savvopoulos, Dimitra Galani, Locomondo, George and Nikos Stratakis, with Solmeister as their soloist.
