January, and with warm wishes for the New Year still being exchanged left, right and centre, the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra and its select guest artists would like to invite you to join them in their celebratory concert to ring in 2017. With Danish composer Hans Christian Lumbye’s exuberant “Happy New Year!”, the senior Strauss’ seasonal polka, American composer Lee Henry Hoiby’s tasty opera “Bon Appetit!” (inspired by none other than the inimitable Julia Child) and, to round off the evening, a selection of songs from the two main exponents of Greek operetta, join us in ringing in the New Year, with the best of wishes for peace, happiness and prosperity to one and all!
