vissi5Eurovision stars Anna Vissi (pictured), Constantinos Christoforou and Despina Olympiou will take part in a ‘Cyprus Unplugged’ benefit concert at the Palais des Beaux Arts (Bozar) in Brussels on 9 November. All proceeds from the event, organised under the patronage of European Commissioner Androulla Vassiliou, will go to charities on the island supporting disadvantaged children and families.

“The social dimension of the economic crisis has been harsh on many of our citizens. Behind the statistics on unemployment and welfare, there are millions of personal stories of pain which are often hidden. I am very grateful to the artists who have agreed to perform without payment. The money raised will improve the lives of vulnerable children and families in Cyprus. At the same time it will send a clear message everywhere on the need for more solidarity, understanding and support,” said Commissioner Vassiliou.

The musicians will perform an ‘unplugged’ (acoustic) concert, accompanied by guitar, piano and bouzouki. The event will also feature Cypriot poetry.

Si Commissioner Vassiliou, na nag-aanyaya sa mga kapwa komisyonado upang suportahan ang inisyatiba, ay magbubukas ng konsiyerto.

“Our political measures in response to the crisis need to be accompanied by a response from society itself. This needs to come from organised groups, volunteers, the church and others – but mostly from citizens themselves. I hope a lot of people will come and show their support,” she added.

Ang mga tiket para sa konsyerto, na naka-presyo sa € 30, ay magagamit sa Brussels mula sa tanggapan ng Bozar box, 23 rue Ravenstein, pati na rin ang Périple, 115 rue Froissart, Kafenio, Rue Stévin 134, at Attica, 49-51 Rue des Treves. Available din ang mga ito sa pamamagitan ng email mula sa [protektado ng email] at [protektado ng email]. Ang pag-upo ay wala nang tiwala.

Ang mga sumusunod na charity ay makikinabang mula sa konsyerto:
