“Greek Tango” in Houston

In an effort to promote Hellenic Culture at all levels in the Southwest region of the US, the Cretan Association of Houston, HCC, present a unique musical event. Not since the 1930’s has such a musical event been offered to the US public.
On the 26th of September, at 4:00 PM CST, at the Wortham Center of Houston (house of Houston’s Grand Opera) in the Cullen Theater, we present to quality music lovers, “Greek Tango”.
Take a two hour stroll in the romantic Greece of the first half of the 20th century. Hear songs filled with memories from that special time when they were created.
Be part of this ground-breaking modern and humane approach to the known and unknown 20th century with respect to the sounds and images that created these songs which became classics. This is a real opportunity to promote a deeper profile of the culture of Greece. Shedding light to an unknown, deeper side of Greek culture
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.
Hear songs from the magical Attik, to the charming, amaranthine melodies introduced by Souyoul, Chairopoulos, Glannidis, and Gounaris.

Hear ‘Light’ Greek songs from the first half on the 20th century revealed again before us with moving, timeless immediacy.
The velvety voice of Hrysoula Stefanaki, who got established in Greece by the revival of the songs of “Sophia Vembo” and “Danae”, faithful to the aesthetic ideals of the between World War Era and the orchestration by David Nachmias, make this show a real time machine filled with the colors and aesthetics that gave us this great unsung art form.
The proceeds from this event will go towards the Building Fund to establish a Greek Museum and Center in Houston TX.
