The unprecedented rain fall may have put a pause on Greek Fest Darling Harbour but with the perseverance of the Greek Orthodox Community, a new date has been confirmed. In an almost sold-out concert last night at Enmore Theatre, Melina Aslanidou announced that she will be remaining in Sydney to perform at Greek Fest Darling on the new scheduled date of Sunday 27 March.
Aslanidou is considered to be musical royalty in Greece; she is one of the most successful singers of her generation, known for her remarkable vocal range and unique songs.
She has made a name for herself, with her vocal timbre and her versatile singing style, combining the traditions of Greek folk, entechno music and pop.
Tumbalong Park will be packed with food vendors, dishing up classic and modern twists on Greek snacks and sweets including everything from souvlakia, sheftalies, haloumi, loukoumades, a licensed bar and much more.
There’ll be Greek dance performances at the Convention Centre Forecourt by Sydney’s best Greek and Cypriot dancing schools and loads of live music entertainment from local Melbourne artist Maria Maroulis.
Undoubtedly one of the most prominent multicultural events in Sydney, and a must-do in the events calendar, Greek Fest Darling Harbour will give Sydneysiders a taste of Greece as the foreshore of Darling Harbour comes alive.
“After much persistence, we were excited to be able to secure the new date with Darling Harbour and we were equally excited that Melina Aslanidou was able to stay on to perform.
We know this is an event that the public looks forward to and we prepared to do everything in our power to make it happen” said President of the Greek Orthodox Community, Harry Danalis.
