We gathered by the fireplace with Olimpic

On the eve of December AR-NE organized an evening of Romanian music and poetry “By the Fireplace”. The event took place Sunday, the 21st of November, 2010, at Wellesley Community Center (219 Washington St, Wellesley MA, www.wellesleycommunitycenter.org).

We were happy and fortunate to have among us the members of the group Olimpic. Cristi, Vali, Ducu, Bebe and Nelu entertained us with auditory allusions to ancient myths, eternal preoccupations and the constant stirrings of the Romanian soul.

We’d like to thank the members of Olimpic, as well as the following volunteers: Livia Dinu, Titus Vicas, Valentin Neacsu, Alexadru Lefter and little Andreea Budiu. Their recitals reminded us of contemporary and classical works. The program was coordinated by Alexandru Lefter, and included the following works:

* Totusi, iubirea
* Clopotul reintregirii
* Iancu Jianu
* Cantec pentru Oltenia
* Reaprindeti candela
* Amintire cu haiduci
