To celebrate their 30th anniversary, the Australian Institute of Macedonian Studies (AIMS) proudly presents the musical concert Alexander the Great: Pioneering Multiculturalism
Featuring an original score written by well-known Melburnian composer Christos Ioannidis, the concert celebrates the life and achievements of Alexander the Great. It highlights Alexander’s promotion of Hellenic ideals within a large multicultural empire and the significance of his expedition in influencing Hellenic and Asian civilisation. The concert also celebrates the unique role of Ancient Macedonia as an integrated cultural space within the Classical and Hellenistic world, and its parallels with contemporary multicultural societies.
The music will be performed by a 25-piece symphony, managed by internationally renowned conductor Douglas Heywood, who was awarded the Order of Australia Medal in recognition of his service to Music Education and Community Music. The concert features a baritone and soprano supported by 40-piece choir.
