Sat, Jan 9, 6pm-9pm Pacific time
The 165 year-old Croatian community of SF Bay Area goes on-line to continue it’s yearly festival after the Croatian American Cultural Center is closed to performances by covid19.
This virtual festival will present artists who have recently performed at the Center including Sinovi, John Morovich, Sidro Tamburitza Orchestra, Slavonian Traveling Band, Ruzmarin Klapa, Koraci Croatian Folk Ensemble, Zeljko Jergan, Skalinada Croatian Dance Ensemble, Lilla Serlegi, and Zora Klapa.
Other famous Croatian artists have also performed at the Croatian American Cultural Center in the yearly San Francisco Tamburitza Festival. They include Ponoc, Jerry Grcevich, Sinovi of Chicago, Sarena, Momci, Zadnja Stanica,T-Roma and famously the great Zelko Bogdan in the First Ever SF TamFest.
Using the virtual format and Chip Curry’s video artistry allows us to present some of the notable Croatian American personalities in the Bay Area Croatian community that were featured in his 45 minute film “Croatian Stories.”
This entire virtual event is a film festival of sorts. It consists of the short films Chip Curry has made at the Croatian American Cultural Center over the past 20 years. In these films he has tried to capture not only the music, but the many reasons why music and dance are so vital in the Croatian community.
Presented by Croatian American Cultural Center
