The Cultural Center of the City of Tarpon Springs in Florida will present the story of how many Greek Americans reached America’s shores at the concert entitled Xenitia: Journey Songs of the Greek Diaspora. This story has been told many times and passed down from generations.
The showcase is a series of public programs that explore the journey of Greek immigrants, as reported in Tarpon Springs Patch website.
In the framework of this exhibit, the members of the band Ellada, as well as the local Kalymnian vocalist Irene Karavorikos and the visiting clarinetist Jim Stoynoff will give a musical performance on May 31 from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm.
The event is being presented in conjunction with The Smithsonian exhibition Journey Stories, which explores the powerful tales of how the ancestors came to America, the place they now call home, according to Tarpon Springs Patch website.
The small exhibition Journeys to Tarpon Springs, which will feature items by local families to remind them of the homes and families left behind, will be presented at the cultural center as well.
The exhibits will be at the City of Tarpon Springs’ Center for Gulf Coast Folklife from April 11 until July 5. Admission to the concert is free.
