A Musical Event: Studying Our Roots

folklore workshopThe HCGM Hellenic Cultural Institute’s (HCI) Folklore Workshop is commemorating the anniversary of our National Rebirth. With respect and love for the boundless riches of our popular culture, we are proud to present the musical event: Studying Our Roots «Όσα η ιστορία υφαίνει, ο χορός με κύκλους δένει», from the Byzantium to the Great Uprising, on Sunday, April 26, 2015, at 5:00pm, at our Hellenic Community Centre Adrian Maris.

This is a presentation of the Nation’s struggles to Freedom and Independence through traditional song and dance. With the educational and pedagogical character of dance, and its usage as a source of information and knowledge, a group of about 200 dancers, storytellers, musicians and singers will take you many centuries back in time through their performances.  It will be a reflection of our modern history beginning in 324 A.D, from the founding of Constantinople in 324 AD, to the recognition of the independence of the Greek State in 1830.

All proceeds from the event will go towards the renovation completion of the stage in the hall of the Hellenic Community Centre Adrian Maris.

Seats are numbered and the availability is limited. General admission is $20. Tickets can be purchased during our rehearsal hours at the following locations: Montreal – Community Centre (Monday, Wednesday and Friday 7:30 to 9:30) In Laval and Roxboro, in the corresponding ‘Socrates-Demosthenes’ School campuses (Friday 5:30 to 8:30) South Shore – Community Center (Saturday 2:30 to 4:30) For more information, call (514) 977-9888

Thanking you, and hoping to see you there.
