On 20 January 2016, the Lighthouse for the Blind of Greece hosted the New Year’s cake cutting ceremony at its facilities.

The program started with some religious choral songs, byzantine carols and folk songs, delivered by chanters, ex members of the byzantine choir of the Lighthouse for the Blind of Greece.

 There was a vivid reference to the habits and way of life in Athens in the previous decades by Mr Mataragkas, person in charge of the Theatrical Workshop of  our association, and after the cake-cutting procedure there were unique songs by Mrs Panatzi- experienced singer-, accompanied with the well-known pianist Mr Papavassilopoulo.
