AN ORCHESTRA – A WARM EMBRACE

Community Outreach Concerts dedicated to Premature Birth

Far and beyond its music and artistic activities, the contribution of the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra extends to the wider social reality. As of 2017, the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra Foundation places on a new basis its social contribution, by establishing a framework of Corporate Social Responsibility through which a specific cause will be adopted every year. This year, our Symphony Orchestras will be supporting premature infants (pre-term newborns) by contributing to the visibility of the issue of prematurity. In Cyprus, one out of ten children is born prematurely, a fact that places the island in the 13th place internationally, according to the World Health Organization. The community outreach concerts “An Orchestra – A warm embrace” are especially dedicated to this cause and take place around the World Prematurity Day (November 17th).

The Cyprus Symphony Orchestra tours six different communities of Cyprus and invites everyone to enjoy a special concert with beloved orchestral works busting with rhythmic vivacity, zest and unforgettable melodies.
