Moment from 2010 concert

In an effort to promote Hellenic Culture in the Southwest region of the US, Hellenic cultural center of the southwest and the Cretans of Houston,  present for 2nd year in a row, the musical event of the year. 

On the 17th of September, at 4:30 PM CSTat the Wortham Center of Houston (house of Houston’s Grand Opera) in the Cullen Theater, we present to quality music lovers, “Greek Belle Époque: The Tango Era”.

This year in Houston's top concert theater, there will be the first time to be presented ever musical masterpieces written 100 years ago but never before n public. Along with them, you will be able to sing some well-known tunes from Greek and from the international realm.

We are creating Hellenic History in Houston! Be there to experience firsthand the richness of Greek heritage. 

This year it is of the utmost importance to get to know what Greece can offer.

We feel that we can borrow again the same phrase from last year's presentation: "Enjoy this special tribute to the songs that marked an entire era, which has remained alive strong and beloved until nowadays. These masterpieces are classics, expressing rare kindness, elegance and sophistication."


Experience once again the universality of Greek civilization condensed in the golden song creations of the first part of twentieth century.

The velvety voice of Hrysoula Stefanaki, faithful to the aesthetic ideals of the Mid-War Era and the music arrangement of David Nachmias, make this show a real time machine filled with the colors and aesthetics that gave us this great pure art form.

The proceeds from this event will go towards the Building Fund to establish a Greek Museum and Center in Houston TX
