European Music Day Greece – Artwork 2015

We have the pleasure to present you the official artwork of the European Music Day 2015.

Music is harmony, the union of gaps in a musical scale. As the geometry. The points, lines and curves are like the notes, half-tones and melodies.

It is what brings people together in a common space.

The European Music Day is simply the tool, that empirically and intuitively connects people … in more than 30 cities across the country.

This year’s events are dedicated to Melina Mercouri and the Europe of Culture(s).

The artists are preparing, instruments are tuned, venues are decorated and in few days will be announced the Nationwide Program.

Until then, stay tuned!
