In 1840, Xyndas and Antonios Liveralis (also student of N. Mantzaros) were the only professional musicians participating in the Philharmonic Society of Corfu, where Xyndas also taught. Around 1840, Xyndas began composing concert arias and songs in demotic Greek. He also composed other works, the most notable of which was Anna Winter, the earliest use of a Dumas work in the modern Greek theatre.
