There will be a live satellite link to Andre Rieu’s concert which he holds annually in his hometown of Maastricht. It will take place in the newly refurbished cinema in Neapoli (North East Crete) on Saturday 23rd July, 2016 and tickets are available from INCO at 15 Euros each. Concert starts at 21.00 hrs SHARP! (not Greek time!). Having attended these concerts twice before, I can highly recommend them to anybody who enjoys Andre’s music and showmanship.
For those of you not aware there is a thriving group of expat residents that form the Agios Nikolaos foreign community known as INCO. Many Brits are involved. The group has working links with the local powers-that-be in Agios Nikolaos. It has also raised worthwhile funds for local projects.
With regards to bringing in the satellite feed of Andre Rieu concert, it is something of a brainchild of a key supporter of INCO Barbara Kalinowska. Barbara has worked closely with the Driros Cinema owners – who happen to be the Orthodox Church to bring in the specialised equipment to present such live satellite events.
Judging by last year, the Rieu concert evening is well attended and draws from a cross section of the cultural scene in Lassithi which includes many local Cretans.
BTW the cinema is well air conditioned. Refreshments can also be bought at the cinema.
