Missions and objectives

The main objectives of En Chordais, as set out in the organisation’s statutes, are the research, study, teaching and presentation of the Greek musical heritage, the search for and reconstruction of the elements of a shared musical culture of the Mediterranean through collaborations with cultural and research centres, educational bodies from around the Mediterranean and Europe and, finally, the support and promotion of new musical creation. The activity of En Chordais has, above all, an educational, scientific and artistic nature, bearing two important parameters in mind:
i. the need to contribute to a collective cultural awareness
ii. the promotion of Greece as a crossroad of cultures, a place of peaceful coexistence and cultural dialogue and as the bearer of a rich heritage
