Hellenic Festival in NYC


(system) #1

Hi everyone,

My work computer refuses to write Greek characters, so I have to use English (Grenglish is too complicated for me!). For our American residents, here is an interesting program from the 2004-2005 Hellenic Festival in NYC. Will Grigoris M. participate-I didn’t find anything in the program, but I might have missed something.

Take care, Eva
