(PAST EVENT) Come see PAVLO, award-winning guitarist, and raise funds for school for orphans
Updated: Dec 2, 2020
On November 16, Worldwide Friends of Ugandan Orphans is hosting award-winning Mediterranean guitarist Pavlo at the Berklee Performance Center in Boston, MA, and with this we launch our biggest mission yet: to build a new school for Trio School & Orphanage in Mityana, Uganda. The floor plans for the new school are already prepared, foretelling a two-story, six-classroom structure, which will replace the tattered tarp walls and precarious wooden ceiling of the current "building" in which which the orphans currently learn. The new school will radically change the education of over 100 orphans in Mityana, lifting them closer to their aspirations for purposeful lives beyond the orphanage.
Pavlo (Pavlo Simtikidis) has made a name for himself through his brand of Mediterranean music—a blend of Greek, flamenco, Latin, and Balkan styles, wrapped in contemporary pop. Over the span of his 20-year career, Pavlo has shared stages with José Feliciano, Jon Secada, Olivia Newton-John, and the Tenors, and has performed for Prince Charles.
Born in Toronto to Greek parents, Pavlo has released 11 albums of original music and two collaborative projects, including Guitarradas (2015) with Remigio Pereira and Trifecta (2009) with fellow guitar masters Rik Emmett and Oscar Lopez. This show will feature music from his second PBS special, Live in Kastoria, and other selections from his extensive catalog. At the end of the show, he will give his guitar away to one lucky audience member.
All proceeds will go toward building a school for orphans in Uganda.
Admission: $30 / $40 / $50 / $60 / $100
Note: $100 ticket includes a post-show meet and greet with Pavlo.
