It’s a Whole ‘New World’

“Whether it’s classical, jazz, pop or whatever, if during those two hours of the concert the artist succeeds in making people forget their daily upsets and worries, then something nice and useful has been accomplished for the survival of mankind,” Katsaris said. “It’s about getting to a higher spiritual level and making people happy.” […] Katsaris said he’s looking forward to working with Ioannides, whom he met while serving as best man at her father’s wedding in Cyprus two decades ago.
