Zarja’s Centennial Celebration Concert is almost here! That’s right. On Sunday, October 30th Slovenian Singing Society Zarja will present its official 100th Anniversary Concert at the Slovenian Society Home, 20713 Recher Avenue in Euclid, Ohio.
Through the years Zarja has performed varied types of music – Slovenian as well as other music – and the program, beginning at 3:00 P.M., will reflect that repertoire. Music by the likes of J. Strauss, Jr., Anton Foerster, Radovan Gobec, Slak, the Avseniks and others. In addition to that there will be guest performances from other well-known local Slovenian music groups and perhaps some other pleasant surprises.
The doors will open at 2:30 with the concert beginning at 3:00 and then music by Patty C and the Guys along with sandwiches and beverages following the program at 5:00pm.
Tickets for the program are $15.00 and may be purchased from your favorite Zarja member, at the Cleveland Style Polka Hall of Fame or, for tickets or more information by contacting Barbara at 440-257-2540, Karen at 216-481-1379 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
