REVMA performing on the Prado

The North End Music and Performing Arts Center (NEMPAC) provided another free concert Thursday on the Prado (Paul Revere Mall) as a part of their Free Summer Concert Series. REVMA performed traditional Greek music for all to enjoy. Free arts and crafts were also provided by North End Against Drugs.

To start the night off, three students who learn under private instruction at NEMPAC performed for the public. Ferdinand Carangelo and Sharon Tam performed piano pieces, and Caitlin McDermott sang a song from The Little Mermaid.

After the student performances, REVMA began their traditional Greek “Dimotika” music set. The three musicians were: Sandy Theodorou (accordion, laouto, and vocals), Glenn Dickson (clarinet), and Fabio Pirozzolo (percussion and vocals). Throughout their performance, the group told stories about the songs they sung and described certain aspects of traditional Greek culture. To find out more about REVMA, visit their website.
