Olympic Glory

ABOUT THE SONG

Ceremony - May 20, 2000

Day - Arrival of the Olympic Flame

The President of the Greek Olympic Committee, Mr. Lambis Nikolaou, bestowed Sevy with the honor to compose and perform a work for the "Sydney 2000" Olympic Torch Ceremony in Andros, Greece.

At noon, on May 20, 2000, the Olympic Torch arrived by boat on Andros island. It was passed by local athletes who ran it up to Andros' famous "Square of the Monument to the Unknown Sailor". There, over 1000 people awaited its arrival. The festivities were held at the square with Sevy's performance as the finale.

Sevy presented her song, "Trumpet of Glory", in two languages starting with Greek - in honor of the culture which founded the Olympics, and finishing in English - as a gesture to the hosting country, Australia, and its Olympic Committee representatives present at the ceremony in Andros.

Evening - Concert Celebration

Sevy performed "Trumpet of Glory" for a second time, opening the concert of Miki Theodorakis' ensemble. After this second performance, the Mayor of Andros, Dimitri Giannisis, presented Sevy with a special award.
