    Performing Arts Medicine deals with many aspects of performance health. Injuries of muscles, voice pathology, neurological conditions, effects of travelling and touring, psychological and lifestyle matters, are some of the subjects that need to be learnt and practised by Performing Arts Medical Specialists. Dr Hara Trouli, from University College London, presents an intriguing in- depth overview of the field and how the future can be designed in order to not only treat but also prevent problems that affect performing artists’ careers.

    A piano recital follows by the superb Greek pianist Manos Kitsikopoulos, whose strive for excellence has gained him international recognition as an Academy of Athens scholar and honorary graduate of the Royal Academy of Music in London. Manos will present an intriguing musical journey which will trace the transition from early childhood to death and rebirth through a selection of children’s pieces by Corea and Gubaidulina, late pieces of Liszt and Pärt, concluding with Beethoven’s apocalyptic final piano sonata in C minor op.111.

    A multimedia experience made up of silent documentaries supported by a live classical piano performance that together highlight advances in evolutionary biology, by International pianists, science PhD students, twin sisters Marianna and Stephanie Kapsetaki (followed by questions & answers session). In a world of Darwinian survival of the fittest, why do organisms cooperate? In evolution, only one thing counts: gene copies. Co-operators may have fewer offspring but, as a result of providing help to their family, they may leave many more nieces, nephews, or grandchildren. This is termed “kin selection”. Kin selection and cooperation among non-relatives are important in the major evolutionary transitions in individuality where previously independent units become capable of replicating only as part of a whole group. Cooperative behaviours lead to this complexity and prevent us from evolving back to the primordial soup. Welcome to the world of major evolutionary transitions in individuality!

    Beethoven’s heroic ‘Emperor’ concerto was conceived under fire as Napoleon’s forces surrounded Vienna, yet flowing from the imperial majesty of its three opening orchestral chords and interspersed bubbling piano lines, it conveys a tenderness and beauty far removed from the sounds of the battlefield. In a rare and unique evening of orchestral melodies, the universally acclaimed Greek-born conductor, artistic director of the renowned orchestra Armonia Atenea, George Petrou, leads the next generation of orchestral talent and the multi international award winning piano soloist Marianna Kapsetaki. This is a thrilling opportunity for the audience to experience a towering concert of musical genius.
