His harmony, melody and rhythm tell a story using a mythological narration to explain the development of primitive wind instruments, from the double-flute, to the tsabouna (Greek bagpipe).

The presentation includes “One Stone: A tower raising campaign” — a look at the renovation of Pantazis’ exhibition space and workshop in La Ponta, a 13th century Venetian tower of the Castle of Akrotiri on Santorini Island in Greece.

This presentation is also interactive — bells and handmade Cycladic Greek drums are put in the hands of the audience. The message is that music is a toy, this is why these musicians say “I PLAY music,” educating and uniting people through music and ancient Greek and folk instruments.

This experience is perfect for musicians, world travelers, historic preservationists and families. All are welcome on Sunday, January 26 at 3 p.m. at ARTworks in Beaufort Town Center, 2127 Boundary Street, Beaufort, SC.

Tickets are $20 per person, $8 for children 12 and under; and $14 for groups of 10 or more. Visit www.artworksinbeaufort.org or call 843-379-2787 for more information.
