In the context of the 17th International Cyclades Festival of Classical Music, two special concerts were held in Syros on the 12th and 14th of August 2021: Four Seasons, with works by Α. Vivaldi and Α. Piazzola, and Gems of Chamber Music with works by J. Turina, N. Skalkotas and Α. Borodin.

The Festival was supported by the Municipality of Syros-Hermoupolis and Syros Culture 2021, attesting to the broad appeal it enjoys among the local community, and was organised under the auspices and sponsorship of the Ministry of Culture & Sports and the Hellenic Tourist Organisation.

It was well attended by the island’s inhabitants and visitors despite the small capacity of the amphitheatre were the concerts were held due to the health protocols against the spread of Covid-19, in confirmation of the lasting appeal of the International Cyclades Festival of Classical Music among the music-loving public of Syros.
