Two Free Concerts at St. George Antiochian Orghodox Christian Church

2013middleeastfestival

Cappella Romana is happy to announce two free mini-concerts on Sunday, September 8, 2013 at 2:00pm and 4:30pm during the St. George Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church’s 36th Annual Middle Eastern Festival!

St. George members started the event in 1972 to celebrate their community’s unique heritage and to share fun, food, and excitement with their neighbors while raising money for church projects. The parish has grown in recent years since moving into their new temple on N.E. 162nd. The parish is ethnically diverse, with many members originating from Syria and Lebanon. Other members are of Egyptian, Palestinian, Jordanian, Ethiopian, or Greek descent. And, many members are converts to Orthodoxy from other Christian denominations. The festival features booths with a la carte dishes such as succulent barbecued chicken kebabs, delicious gyros, spicy falafel, spinach and meat pies (and other finger foods), salad, wonderful Arabic sweets, and coffee. Seating will be available both outside and inside.
