Featuring the internationally acclaimed and award-winning musical composer, Panagioties Liaropoulos, and The Greek Music Ensemble, the concert will take place at 8 p.m. at The Cathedral Center, 162 Goddard Ave., in Brookline, ma 02445. “This is sure to be a magical evening that will delight music lovers of all ages,” said Annette Kaselis, a Dedham, Mass. resident and one of the concert’s chairpersons.

Listeners will delight in the music of Hadjithakis, Thedorakis, Vangelis and a few other surprises for music lovers of all ages.

He also received second prize in the prestigious Dimitri Mitropoulos International Composition Competitions in 2005 for his Concerto for Flute and Orchestra and first prize at the Composers’ National Workshop at Megaron Concert Hall in Athens (1999).
