This year, FDF comes to San Diego for the 8th time since it began in 1976. The 2017 Greek Orthodox Folk Dance & Choral Festival will take place at the Town and Country Resort & Convention Center in Mission Valley. Though the FDF schedule is packed with events, if you’re from out of town you may want to take advantage of the time you have in San Diego to explore the city.
Throughout history, music has played a role in the creation of visual art – and vice versa. This month The Art of Music exhibit comes to the San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park! From September 25th to February 07, 2016, you have an opportunity to experience a complex and thought-provoking exhibit that explores the relationship between music and art.
San Diego’s Balboa Park is the site of this year’s Statewide Folk Dance Festival. Yves Moreau will teach dances from Bulgaria and Richard Powers will be teaching vintage couple dances. There is also a special Teachers Workshop with France Bourque-Moreau, and live music by Dromia and Eastern Exposure. A Live Auction and Silent Auction are planned, along with a performance concert on Sunday.
