Almost a year ago I shook these goddesses very early off their beds in order to shoot them under the summer sun of Chalkidiki in Greece. Luckily, they also reminded me I should publish these photos. I don’t amuse myself into the idea of taking any credit for these pictures because really, they were just being natural. And sleepy.
this is a fast forward Make Up preparation for me as Rosina in Il Barbiere di Siviglia. Some close friends asked for it, so there it is!
I have been performing for 2 and a half months already, 4 shows per week. I am very grateful for this experience, I learned a looooot.
New shows to be announced soon!
I will not wish you happiness, because happiness is a choice. That is my resolution.
I wish you health from the bottom of my heart, to you and your dear ones!

In Paris, January 24th 2016, I had the pleasure to perform with the Orchestre Symphonic du XX under the baton of Mohamed Hafiz Razali! The audience welcomed us, warm and exciting, we had couple of encores, so we go back for two more concerts in April! À la prochaine!!!
Ok, I am training to become an opera singer, but on my free rain days…
I hope you will enjoy my new cover:
This song has been following me for months before I managed to set the rec mode on.
Its a one take recording, one microphone.
This is a piece by Storm Large and I do not hold any rights on it.
I simply had the joy to know it and sing it on.
Hope you enjoy!
Month of my birthday!

First of all, I have been selected for the La Monnaie Opera Choir for next season in Brussels! Weeeee! Second, here you can see a photo from the latest photoshoot I made in my apartment in Brussels.Rebecca is a musician situated in Leuven. We had only 2 hours to get this shots so I am very pleased with the outcome. Third, the recital in Artbase last Wednesday was a-ma-zing! Such a warm atmosphere! Last, this Wednesday I am playing in Kotconcerten Citybeats, Sint Michielstraat 28, 1000 Brussel +Nikos Baroutsakis.
I had the pleasure to learn another photo of mine excelled in 21st Panhellenic Photography Competition (2015) in Florina. This photo is very precious to me, is the photo of my Grandpa sitting at the village balcony late at night. He did not at first realize it was him when I showed him the photo, but once he did, he looked at me and said:
“Oh no! I’ m wearing my pajamas! hehehe”
Among the jobs he did, my grandfather used to make a living taking portraits of people when he was young… well, I guess nothing is random…
Here you can see the pic uploaded from the competition http://www.lpflorinas.gr/sites/default/files/stories-images/DIAKRISI_MEMONOMENIS_PATOULIDOU%20AFRODITI_M1.jpg
