The Ancient Lyre: A special concert and workshop with Luthieros
The Department of Ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern Studies and Green College are proud to offer a free concert of fresh and ancient music on the reconstructed ancient Greek lyre, courtesy of a professional musician (Theodore Koumartzis) and composer (Evagoras Bekiaris) traveling from Greece to Vancouver.
Employed by several scholars and masters of ancient music for international performances, lyres by Luthieros are designed and hand-crafted to replicate genuine ancient instruments, based on archaeological and visual evidence from antiquity.
