Slavjane consists of 30 students ranging from ages 4 to 18 from all over the Pittsburgh area. This year, we celebrate our 40th anniversary and welcome back many of our alumni. Featured on this year’s concert are songs, dances, and musical selections from Croatia, Greece, Serbia, Slovenia, and Carpatho-Rus’. The junior ensemble is sure to please everyone with their high energy dancing and singing. Rounding out Slavjane’s concert will be the signature piece “Kozačko” in which the boys display their athleticism and girls feature intricate steps and turns.

Slavjane’s very accommodating “home” is Holy Ghost Byzantine Catholic Church in McKees Rocks, where Father Frank Firko is pastor. Slavjane is a cultural program which receives financial consideration from the Greek Catholic Union, and is acknowledged by the Byzantine Catholic Archeparchy of Pittsburgh as an important organization of the Archeparchy. Slavjane also has the continued endorsement of the Archeparchy as the official representative of Carpatho-Rusyn cultural and ethnic heritage in the U.S.
