40 Years of Folklore From SFE Kolo PDF Print E-mail


During Summer 2009, Kolo held the annual KoloFest with guests Ensemble Rastko (London, England). Our singers and orchestra debuted several songs with our Music Director Ivan Radovanovic. Kolo began Adult Folk Fit Classes! We also welcomed new members to the group.  Contact us for more info.


In November, Kolo hosted a grand 40th Anniversary celebration weekend! We received well wishes from Radojica Kuzmanovic, Director National Serbian Ensemble Kolo (Belgrade), Hamilton’s Mayor Fred Eisenberger, and communities from Canada and the US.


In a professional theatre, Kolo held a 40th Anniversary Concert with 700 spectators, classic dances and new choreographies. We debuted a special Koretiste choreography by the National Serbian Ensemble Kolo’s (Belgrade) Director. Our singers and orchestra presented beautiful traditional songs. The crowd loved it!


Alumni danced a few favourites and guests St Nicholas Church Folklore Groups Bosiljak and Neven, Ozrenski Biseri and Ensemble Gracanica (Boston) showed their talents. The night continued with an energetic Dance at the Canadian Serbian Community Centre.


We also hosted a Banquet including Members of Parliament and Provincial Parliament, Hamilton Councillor and community leaders. Speakers commented on Kolo’s contribution to the cultural arts scene. A historical exhibit and slideshow completed the great weekend.
