March is the month of women in Romania and the U.S. and so it is at the Romanian Cultural Institute. We mark the most beloved days of the Romanian calendar – March 1, an exaltation of life renewed, and March 8, the universal homage to womanhood – with an unconventional event celebrating the vision and skills of some extraordinary women who have conquered professions and roles once dominated by men.
Keynote remarks by H.E. Mr. Andrei Muraru, the Ambassador of Romania to the United States.
Featuring three outstanding leaders – Aurelia Vișinescu, Crina Duluțe Florea and Elena Starrantino Chirculescu – who are at the forefront of the remarkable reinvention of Romanian wine-making industry and will reveal the secrets of one of the most complex terroirs in the world.
With musical coverage by saxophonist Lily Kaufmann, accompanied by John Ling (drums) and Anna Abondolo (bass).
