Masonic Concert

The Palace of the Romanian Athenaeum hosted an outstanding international Masonic concert, on December 19th, 2010, in the Romanian capital, Bucharest. The theme chosen this year was the Tango, part of UNESCO's intangible heritage.

For nearly three hours, guests could watch a royal international music and dance performance presented by Ion Caramitru, former minister of culture. In the great hall of the palace were present almost all members of the Romanian Masonic Grand Lodges and Rites, representatives of national institutions (former ministers, MP's, etc.) and members of the diplomatic corps accredited in Bucharest. The event was conducted under the patronage of the Ministry of Culture of Romania and will be broadcast on the National Television.

The Supreme Council of Romania Foundation has awarded three prizes to outstanding young talents, thereby promoting the value, an essential component of the Masonic Order. As was mentioned in the speech of the foundation's Director, this is based on the principles of Universal Freemasonry. From abroad came messages of congratulations for this significant cultural, social and philanthropic event where the value played a central role.

The Foundation's President personally handed the first gift to a young violinist who impressed the audience by singing a play. Another initiative of the Foundation was to remove a number of children from orphanages. The Feminine Grand Lodge of Romania and Acvatot Foundation also contributed through donations.

On arrangements of Astor Piazzola, dancers impressed the audience with elegance. Last track (Liber Tango) raised the spectators and the dancers danced again in a round of applause of the spectators.
