39th Annual Spring Concert
The National Capital Region Croatian Folklore Ensemble presents the Croatoan 39th Annual Spring Concert.

The Croatian Folklore Ensemble Croatoan was founded in 1978 to celebrate Croatia’s traditional songs and dances throughout the National Capital Region of Canada. Since then, their dedication to the Croatian heritage has warmed the hearts of Croatian-Canadians and other Canadians alike. First founded under the auspices of the Croatian-Canadian Club of Ottawa-Carleton, Croatoan became an independent not-for-profit organization, registered in Ontario, with its own board of directors and constitution, by 1992. Croatoan is a member of the Croatian Folklore Federation of Canada.

Croatoan has nearly 70 performers who range in age from five to 65. A team of dedicated instructors works diligently to uphold the spirit and authenticity of Croatia’s folkloric songs and dances. Over the years, outside experts in Croatian folklore—Mojmir Golemac, Ivan Ivančan (mladi), Željko Jergan, and Siniša Leopold—have supplemented and enhanced the knowledge and skills of our instructors. Based on age and/or skill level, performers are spread across five kolo dance groups and five tamburica orchestras. The board of directors ensures the continued devotion to Croatians and their rich cultural heritage through strategic leadership, record-keeping, fundraising, financial stewardship, artistic direction, costume creation/preservation, outreach, and provision of social occasions.
