About Us

A Word from our Director

The idea of creating a festival dedicated to Slavic culture came to us after a concert where we played Tchaikovsky and Dvořák. The audience did not know the works presented, but there was so much enthusiasm and excitement listening to this music! People asked us countless questions about the traditions and customs of Eastern European countries… It is to answer these questions, and to introduce the general Quebec and Canadian public to the infinite richness of this culture, that we decided to bring a small part of our countries here, to Montreal.
Come join us, meet our artists, our team and, above all, explore the riches of Slavic culture with us!
