The Numismatic Museum is actively participated in the August 2022 Full Moon celebrations by organising in its magnificent garden a musical event dedicated to the anniversary of the one hundred years from the Great Catastrophe of Smyrna.

The August Full Moon is a successful series of events organised annually by the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports since 2002. Archaeological sites and museums take part in the celebrations.

Under the moonlight, the audience will have the opportunity to attend the concert «Σμύρνη, ξανά γεννήτρες είναι οι Μοίρες / χτυπήστε Ομήρων Ιωνικών οι λύρες» with the melodic voices of Jenny Grima and Vagelis Douvalis, and with Nektarios Dionysatos playing the piano. The soprano Lamprini Kartalis and the tenor Chris Lazos will participate in the event as guests.

The event will take place in the museum’s garden on Friday the 12th of August at 21:00 with the kind support of the Museum Catering corp.

In order to attend the concert, it is necessary to make a telephone reservation at the Museum’s Café (21 0361 0067).
