Dr. Nikolaus Xanthoulis, a Music Researcher with the National Archaeological Museum in Athens, offers this Archaeological Institute of America Philadelphia Society talk, a wide-ranging look at the life of the ancient Greek musician. With degrees from from the Sofia Music Academy (Ph.D.), the Panteion University of Athens, and the Athens and Athenaeum Conservatories, Dr. Xanthoulis studies the music of ancient Greece, the ancient Greek trumpet (Salpinx) and lyre, and the performance of ancient Greek lyric songs. Previously, he has served with the Greek National Opera, as Principal Trumpet Player and Head of Education, and with Greek Public Radio & Television as Artistic Director of the Orchestras and Choir. Following the lecture, Dr. Xanthoulis presents a small concert with 6th-century BCE poems set to his original music and accompanied by a seven-chord ancient Greek lyre.
