Vintage World Music Life Action Trust latest success; Notes of Beauty and Longing
Vintage World Music – with the appropriate subtitle of Notes of Beauty and Longing – was the latest, and unique, event organised by Life Action Trust, filling the auditorium of London private members’ club Home House with gorgeous melody on the 5th April. Life Action Trust, founded in the UK in 1993, provides scholarships for talented young artists.
The trust, with Sofia Konstantopoulou-Papadopoulos chairing the event, welcomed His Excellency the Russian Ambassador Yakovenko Alexander Vladimirovich with his wife Nana and their distinguished guests to the performance by the renowned Cypriot actress and singer performer of vintage world music Elena Hadjiafxendi and the talented musicians Andrea Papapetrou and Michali Iskas. Melodies from iconic Greek and European composers Kostas Giannidis, Attik, Manos Hadjidakis and Kurt Weill created an atmosphere of nostalgia and sensuality.
The purpose of the night was both cultural and charitable as once more Chrisanthy Lemos and the committee members of Life Action Trust, supported the artists and at the same time proved that Greek talents can excel on an international level.
Among the audience at the splendid Portman Square venue (which was created by Wyatt and Adam for Elizabeth Countess of Home in the late 18th century) we spotted the Shakerdemians, Rene Serres, Ingrid Seward, John and Andria Vassiliou, Katia Trimmatis and her son Nicholas, Charlotte Ellis, Irene M. Hadjipateras and Maria Hadjipateras. Companies supporting the event were Zeus & Dion, ELA London, Cetuem, Carpo London, X Factor Greece. We look forward seeing everyone at “The Child with The Drum” event this coming Friday…
