Presents 6th Annual Autumn Festival
On Sunday, October 7th, 2007, supporters of
the Koraci Croatian Folklore Ensemble will host the Sixth Annual Autumn
Festival on the picnic grounds of St. Mary of the Assumption Croatian Catholic
Church located at 901 Lincoln Avenue (entrance on Paula) in the Willow Glen
neighborhood of San Jose, California. The purpose of the festival is to raise
money to support Koraci Folklore Ensemble and to promote Croatian cultural awareness
in the Bay Area.
Koraci Folklore Ensemble is beginning its
11th season this fall. The group has grown to over 50 boys and girls between
the ages of 9 and 20 who come from as far as Watsonville and San Ramon to learn
Croatian folklore from Leo Andres, Sandra Staka and Iva Novak. Their repertoire
includes songs and dances from all parts of Croatia, Bosnia and Hercegovina.
Last year, Koraci performed at many events in the Bay Area and Sacramento. The
highlight of 2007 was the senior group’s participation in the San Francisco
Ethnic Dance Festival.
