Some of the most memorable tunes in popular music come from movie soundtracks.
Some of the most memorable tunes in popular music come from movie soundtracks. Just mention cinematic classics like ‘The Godfather’, ‘Rocky’, ‘Chariots of Fire’, or ‘The Titanic’, and your mind is likely to conjure up the catchy melodies of their theme songs. This month, the Pafos Municipality Philharmonic Orchestra will bring movie music to life in a pair of concerts at Almyra. On 19 and 26 June at 20:30, come to Eauzone—our poolside lounge and bar—and enjoy the band’s performances. The orchestra is an all-volunteer community ensemble directed by conductor Michael ‘Mikis’ Theodorakis. Normally numbering 86 members, the band will be winnowed to 40 for this intimate performance. Your €15 entrance fee includes a welcome drink. The programme will lay emphasis on Greek music, including the Hollywood production of ‘Zorba the Greek’ and some old Greek movies like 'Never on Sunday'. Take in the band’s playing under the stars as the music triggers your memories of the movie stars whose performances indelibly marked these classic films.
