Poems about Greece ~ Music from Greece
a political scientist by profession, began writing poetry as a young man in
Montreal. His marriage to Andromache
resulted in numerous stays in Thessaly – in Volos and in a village on adjacent
Mt. Pelion - and rekindled his poetic inspiration. He has published several collections of
poems, many of which deal with his Greek experiences and memories. For Pharos, Phillip will read an assortment
of his Greek-themed poems, including several from his just-published book,
Passageways. Musicians Kate Gerson,
Erika Gerson, and Laura Blumenthal are members of the Vancouver-based band
Musiki Parea which specializes in traditional Greek and Turkish Music. They will present musical interludes with
songs from Epiros and Macedonia.
