Mission of the Hellenic & Near Eastern Musical Society

The mission of the Hellenic and Near Eastern Musical Society is to promote and enhance awareness of Greek and Near Eastern Music in America. The Society believes that its music represents a key component of Hellenic and Near Eastern culture, transcending all boundaries of age, politics, religion, ethic origin, and socioeconomic strata. Unique in its many artistic forms, the music serves as a universal language, appreciated and understood by all. To quote the noted Greek poet Kostis Palamas, "The ancient Greeks imbued music with meaning, For them, poetry was music, philosophy was music - the highest form of music; everything that systematically and harmoniously shapes life with music; every refinement of the soul was music."
