Wings of Romanian culture – second edition
Sunday, January 15, 2017, on the occasion of the National Day of Culture when we also celebrate the great poet Mihai Eminescu, the Departures Terminal of Bucharest “Henri Coandă” International Airport hosted the second edition of “Wings of Romanian culture” project, developed by Bucharest Airports National Company (CNAB) in partnership with “Eudoxiu Hurmuzachi” Institute (EHI) for Romanians abroad. The event was dedicated to our national culture and is part of the multi-cultural project entitled ”Romanian Identity Caravan”.
The project aimed to transform the Departures terminal into a bridge between the Romanian citizens and foreigners traveling to Romania, the unpremeditated cultural space becoming an attraction for Henri Coanda Airport’s passengers. Thus, the atypical stage from the Departures Terminal hosted Romanian artist whose patriotic voices echoed through the airport and who understood the need to make the Romanian culture and traditions known: “The Harmony” Male Choral of the Archdiocese of Tomis, panpipe player Gheorghe Rizea, folk music singer Dinu Iancu Sălăjanu and the actress Alexandra Velniciuc.
The event was included in the program named “Bucharest Airports, a Value Promoter”, a project which aims to support Romanian excellence and values by promoting cultural, artistic and sports activities.
