From 2010 and every August, a special event takes place in the cool courtyard of the Holy Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. It is dedicated to the memory of Kostis Sofianos, the man who made the oldest hotel on the island 52 years ago. The Minorite businessman who founded the historical "Leto" was a fan of classical music and a great violinist.
For some years, the recitals are part of the "Themistors" and this year will take place on Saturday, August 19, 2017, while the proceeds, as usual, will be allocated for the needs of the hospital. The event, which has been held for the eighth consecutive year, has been established as the top music evening of the summer for the island, as many great musicians such as Leonidas Kavakos, Enrico Pace and other soloists of similar caliber have been recruited over the years. Alexandros and Nikos Sofianos often appear with them, who inherited their father's love for music and their own talent in interpretation. This is one of the moving elements of the event that makes it special.
His sudden death eight years ago made his wife Jennie and his sons, Nikos and Alexandros, institutionalize this action in order to strengthen the Koulourian Hydra Hospital as a sign of gratitude for the care that doctors gave to their own person. The Athanasios & Vera Kouloura Hospital and Charity Foundation "Panagia Faneromeni" has been operating in Hydra since 1982 offering first-rate health services. It has been built with the designs of the well-known architect Alexandros Tombazis. The President today is Messrs. Ephraim, Aegina Desert, Hydra, Spetses, Ermionida & Troizinias.
