Community Choir of South Pelion

A song can be more than words and music ... when sung with soul a song carries you to another world, to a place where no matter how much pain you feel, you are never alone.

Clay Aiken

About Hortodia

Hortodia is a community choir composed of residents from several villages in South Pelion. The choir is made up of singers from eight nationalities. Rehearsals take place once a week in Horto (Tuesday evening @ 19:30 at Hadjinikos Hall in Horto). The repertoire consists mainly of Greek songs but also English, German, Latin, Italian and African. The priority is the enjoyment of the singing individually and as a group, and we are working on improving the individual vocal qualities. Frequently the choir is enhanced by invited musicians, even during rehearsals. You can view our Facebook page here and our blog here.

Everyone is welcome to join the choir.


Please just come to one of our rehearsals at 19:30 on Tuesday evenings at Hadjinikos Hall in Horto.


You will be made very welcome.

The Choir Master


The driving force behind the choir is Nikos Adraskelas, who founded the choir on 6 January 2012. Since then the choir has become very popular within the society of South Pelion, providing performances in several villages throughout the area in collaboration with the cultural associations of the village.
