Legendary tenor Jose Carreras returns after four years since his last appearance for a concert with the ERTNational Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of David Gimenez, on 19 September at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus - Herodion in Athens. Part of the revenues from ticket sales will be given to Floga, a Greek association of parents of children with cancer.
The National Institute of Radio Broadcasting, now known as Hellenic Radio, in 2008 celebrated the 70th anniversary of its first transmission. The state-run Hellenic Radio (ERA) 70 years later returns to Zappeion, the spot from where it transmitted its first broadcast, with a large exhibition that recounts the history of radio in Greece. The exhibition will be held from 8 December until 30 January.
