What a moving and inspiring evening we have experienced! I offer my congratulations and the thanks of all for such stirring and uplifting performances.

The Feast of the Three Hierarchs and of Greek Letters has certainly been well-honored and observed tonight. And the dedication of this event to the Hellenic Education Fund adds a dimension to our enjoyment, because we have collectively dedicated the merit of these marvelous aesthetic achievements to the furtherance of our culture, our language and our shared heritage.
