Firebird Gala Opening Remarks
Ladies and Gentleman, as Chairs of Moscow Committee of Chicago Sister Cities International, we are delighted to welcome you to a magical evening in celebration of the glowing Firebird – a mythical creature originating from Slavic Folklore. The firebird glows brightly emitting red, orange and yellow light. It is the symbol of a turbulent, pure flame that fights darkness and brings prosperity. Through centuries, stories tell us of this mythical bird's magical feather. To find it is to have continuous good luck in every aspect of your life.
Please join us as we celebrate the rich traditions of Slavic culture through an evening of beautiful performances, delightful conversation, and delicious food at the beautiful Union League Club of Chicago.
Let the glowing, fiery celebration begin!
- Aleksandra Efimova and Piotr Galitzine, Chairs of Moscow Committee of Chicago Sister Cities International
