In its first year of operation, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center already became a major cultural producer and destination. Complemented by the events organized by the Greek National Opera and the National Library of Greece, the SNFCC’s program features music, dance, cinema, theater and performing arts.
Based on the SNFCC’s guiding principles, our programming focuses on providing cultural stimuli and opportunities for entertainment and learning to people of all ages, while removing economic, social and other barriers to public access to culture.
The SNFCC’s music programming reflects our firm belief that music has no beginning nor end; it knows no limits nor boundaries. To this effect, SNFCC showcases a wide range of Greek music genres and artists, presenting a curated selection of both acclaimed performers and emerging artists of different generations and traditions, and demonstrating how the many facets of music reflect the diversity in our lives.
SNFCC has developed a range of music series, each focusing on a different genre and style:
These series are augmented by a host of individual concerts, pop-up concerts and other music events.
In 2017, 50 major concerts were organized at the SNFCC.
