    Classical music meets virtual reality. September 25-29, 2023 IONIAN ASSEMBLY Free Admission

    “In an era where classical music as a concept seems somewhat distant, incomprehensible, or even foreign to a large part of our society, today more than ever, we need to invent new, creative ways of coexisting and connecting with our audience. ELSON VR, which our orchestra introduces to the contemporary music scene, is one of our ways to make the musical masterpieces of another era accessible to today’s audience.” Dionysis Grammenos, Founder & Artistic Director of ELSON
