2013 Atlanta Greek Festival
NOTE: THERE IS NOT AN EVENT HOST FOR THIS EVENT. This event is only posted as a FYI just in case people want to go at their leisure.
As noted in every members profile "The assistant organizer named " Georgia Adventurer " is NOT a person. That is a fictional name that is used to post events that do not have a club leader at the event. If no one leads, then you're basically on your own at these events".

The dance shows are performed by the Cathedral’s very own award winning dance group and will be full of flips, thrills and surprises. Any joyous Greek function is considered incomplete without music, dancing and singing. Vibrant bouzouki music are all part of the continuous entertainment presented for you.
Their show is not only about the dances of Greece but is also a spiritual and mythical journey through Greek heritage and tradition for the viewer. Their repertoire consists of over 200 traditional dances from all over Greece, Cyprus and Asia Minor, as well as Greek contemporary dances.
The group has headlined at the Atlanta Greek Festival for the last 20 years and have become a highlight of the celebration. Alpha-Omega Sound brings their listeners the best in traditional and contemporary Greek music. The band, made of local Atlanta Greeks, specializes in authentic Greek music. They play a variety of music from different regions of Greece, as well as songs from the popular artists of today. Their repertoire includes a vast selection of listening and dancing songs that have brought the Atlanta Greek Festival a sound and feeling of its own.
