On Wednesday, May 15, 2019, at 2:00 p.m. in Pierce Theater, there was a tribute to Dionysis Savvopoulos, with the emblematic composer and singer himself as our special guest. The tribute was organized by the Pierce Music Department and the Greek Language Department, as it is part of a broader endeavor to familiarize our students with creative people who combine excellent use of the Greek language along with Music.
The Pierce Orchestra and Choir took part in the event and interpreted the composer’s songs and the C Gymnasium attended. Dionysis Savvopoulos talked with the students and sang with them. Then he had everyone in the audience sitting on the edge of their seats with a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The Pierce family thanked him heartily and hopes that he “will always be the leader of this festival!”
