GREEK MUSIC...at its BEST!!!
"ARTos & Theama" was founded in 2003 in Thessaloniki (Greece) by Anastasia Tamouridou with the objective of organizing, in collaboration with important institutions and festivals throughout Greece and abroad, high-quality cultural events, not only by representing internationally-known artists in Greece but also by undertaking the management of Greek artists within the country and abroad.
