VoiceOnyx supported the 37th Annual Greek Festival this past week-end. The event was sponsored by the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Maitland to celebrate Greek food, dancing and music. Church tours were also available, providing a presentation on the iconography used in design. The church has been undergoing a Beautification Project for the past 6 years.
A wide variety of dishes were featured from Filo Stuffed with Spinach and Feta, to Gyro, to Mousaka (eggplant with ground beef), and Dolmades (stuffed grape leaves). Signature desserts included the Loukoumades (Greek donuts), Baklava (filo with walnuts and honey), and Ergolavos (almond cookies with apricot filling).
Performances by Hellenic Dance Program Students
Dance performances were provided all week-end by members of Holy Trinity’s Hellenic Dance Program. Students from kindergarten to college learn about culture through dance and songs. The Hellenic Dance Festival Troupe competes annually at the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Atlanta. There will also be a competition in Orlando on January 13th and 14th, 2018.
“A Night in Athens” Featured George Antonopoulos
Trivelas Music presented “A Night in Athens” featuring the music of George Antonopoulos, a bouzouki virtuoso who has played at a number of venues in Europe, Canada, the U.S., and South America. He was accompanied by Joanna Longer and Nick Trivelas. George is from Pireas, Greece and comes from a family of talented musicians.
