This chapter tracks Eva Palmer Sikelianos's activities in a different performance medium, music. An organ named for her (Evion Panharmonium), records from a school of Byzantine music where she taught, two lectures, and more letters and photographs structure an inquiry into her collaboration with three subaltern musicians: Penelope Sikelianos, Konstantinos Psachos, and Khorshed Naoroji. Each one of these figures shaped Eva's journey in a different way, causing her to change the orientation of her musical pursuits from an initial disorienting pleasure that beguiled her (Penelope), to an essential part of the curriculum of becoming Greek (Psachos), to the basis of a social movement (Khorshed Naoroji) and ground for staging the Delphic Festivals.
