The first will take place at the Hellenic Centre on 30 November 2017, when the well-known historian, author and broadcaster Dr Bettany Hughes will give a lecture on the study of Hellenism, followed by a concert with the celebrated Greek pianist Panayiotis Gogos. The second event is a concert of classical music including compositions with a Greek association to be performed on the RHUL campus by the internationally renowned pianist Carlo Grante in early March 2018. Further details will be advised nearer the time. The third event will close the 25th Anniversary celebrations with a concert featuring a commissioned choral piece entitled 'Odyssey', composed by Lydia Kakabadse. It will be performed by the RHUL College choir in the Chapel on 27 October 2018. Full details will be posted in due course. We look forward to seeing you at these special events.
