The Greek composer Eleni Karaindrou who gave a fabulous concert together with the Hacettepe University Symphony Orchestra (Ankara, Turkey) and 5 soloists from Greece the previous night at the Lutfu Kırdar Congress Hall, was the guest of honour of the Armada Hotel during her stay in Istanbul. The renowned musician who made the most important films of the world unforgettable through her compositions, came to Turkey upon the invitation of 5th Pera Fest “Encounter of North-South Musicians for Peace". Here is the news story on her magnificent Istanbul and Ankara concerts by Beril Aktaş from Turkish Daily News...
Here is what she wrote in the Honour Book of Armada:
Dear Mr. Kasım,
In the name of my musicians and myself, I thank you very much to you and your gentle crew for the excellent hospitality that was shown to us in such a beautiful hotel like this...
It is not so easy to forget this magnificent stay!
We will come back soon!
