Residents of Vistamere Retirement Residence were treated to a special Christmas performance by CCCS and visiting guest choir HSPD Podgorac from Zagreb Croatia on December 5th, 2017. Artistic Director Edward J. Mavrinac introduced the guests and spoke briefly about their 110-year-old singing history and beautifully intricate costumes. He then guided both choirs through a Christmas musical performance both in Croatian and English to the delight of the residents.  As a memento of the event, HSPD Podgorac gave each resident a “licitar”, a red heart shaped honey cookie Christmas decoration, typical of the Zagreb region.  Needless to say, it was a heart-warming event had by all!
