Led by multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger, and educator Magda Giannikou, Banda Magda will open the 2022-2023 season of Concerts from the Library of Congress, enchanting our audience with music from its new project, Seasons. This work is a tetralogy of albums dedicated to the cyclical and shifting beauty of the natural world. Through a collection of original music and re-imagined folk songs in Greek, English, Italian, Portuguese, French, and Japanese, Banda Magda will connect with the audience through this tribute to Nature: our source of life & endless inspiration.

There will be no pre-concert talk for this event.
