Symposion comes from the Greek word sympinein - ‘to drink together.’

We drink together to discover our individual and collective identities, our present and our past.

Why music? Why mythology?

Both music and mythology exist on two plains. The first in the present moment-ephemeral. The second in stasis - immortal. As Levi Strauss wrote, "It is as if music and mythology needed time only in order to deny it." The listener, immersed in the sounds of music and mythology, gains access to the eternal.​

 

Symposion is dedicated to preserving Greece's cultural heritage. Inspired by the nine muses of Greek mythology, Symposion is a cultural center offering an immersive experience of music and mythology to locals and to visitors from around the world.
