Shortly before Christmas, El Sistema Greece will join forces with Alexia and her band to present some of the world’s best loved Christmas film songs, dating from the early 1900s to the golden age of Hollywood, under the baton of conductor José Ángel Salazar Marín.

Combining jazz with classical music, the masterful musical arrangements ingeniously transpose the sounds of jazz, gospel and swing soundtracks straight into the heart of Athens. 60 young musicians, aged 10–26, featuring a diverse cultural background and tracing their origins in 30 different countries, interpret adaptations of classic tunes to accompany Alexia’s authentic jazz vocals and create a warm and fuzzy holiday atmosphere. 

An unexpected joint appearance, featuring much loved Christmas songs, as well as international hits that are associated with this most magical time of the year, in new exciting covers.
