La Troupe Folklorique Grecque Syrtaki cordially invites you and your families to the vibrant city of Montreal, Canada to attend its third Hellenic Cultural Conference Laografia. From May 15-18, 2015, during the Victoria Day long weekend, this unique conference will bring together friends from across North America and Greece to share their passion for Hellenic culture and heritage. Laografia will focus on various folkloric aspects including dance, song, music, costumes and customs.
Participants will experience the diversity and richness of the Hellenic culture during a great weekend comprised of educational workshops and memorable social events. Proudly, we welcome, from Greece and the United States, four specialized teachers who have devoted their lives to preserving and promoting Hellenism: Yvonne Hunt (Pontismeno & Sidirokastro, Serres), Roula Hatzikonstantinou (Tilos, Nisyros, Kos), Thanasis Karpouzis (Andros) and Dimitris (Tzimis) Ilias (Megara).
The 4-day bilingual conference will also be highlighted by nine extraordinary musicians from Greece and Montreal: Areti Ketime, Nikos Filippidis, Kostas Filippidis, Giorgos Marinakis, Giannis Gevgelis and Diesi.
