Ein singender Pater und Thrakische Tänze

Musik und Tanz dürfen an einem griechischen Abend freilich nicht fehlen. Der Opernsänger und Pater Zafirios Koutelieris sorgte mit seinen musikalischen Einlagen für frenetischen Applaus, so sang er neben griechischen Liedern auch den "Vogelfänger" aus Mozarts Zauberflöte und schwang sein Tanzbein zu Klängen von Mikis Theodorakis. Besonderen Beifall erhielt dabei auch der young Pianist Christos Koutelieris as well as Aliki Giannou. The Thracian Tänze der Gruppe Choreftikos Omilos Graz provided the atmosphere for Stimung.
