The Non-Profit Foundation Angelinis Hadjinikou has been organizing and bringing to fruition an artistic, pedagogical and cultural summer festival at the seaside village of Horto, at the foot of Mt. Pelion in Thessaly, Greece.
Now headed towards its 37th consecutive year, the Foundation has had an unbroken record in bringing an extraordinarily wide range of musical and cultural experiences from Greece and abroad to the region of South Pelion.
Video and audio material from past summers can be found here. The Festival’s program has a twofold aim: it is equally addressed to professionals, as well as to local inhabitants and visitors of Horto in such a way as to create a sensitized public. This two-way communication can only benefit both parties: on one hand, the public partakes of the cultural values offered and gains a certain experience, often from the very moment of its inception, and on the other hand, the artist who arises re-invigorated from his immersion in the flow of human contact and personal relationship with the receiver.
Thus is enhanced the humanistic aspect of art, which was born in, and is, an intrinsic element of the light and nature of Greece.
