In 2008 we switched the venue and held our annual Nauryz celebration at the restaurant “Rondo”. This year we had few notable guests.
Alia Alkhan founder of Kazakh Cultural Center in New York City. As a professional musician, she organizes Kazakh cultural events to share the richness of Kazakh folk and modern music and songs. We were blessed by her captivating performance in this year’s Nauryz celebration.
Robert (Bob) Kaplan, a former Canadian cabinet minister and Honorary Consul of the Republic of Kazakhstan for Canada. Bearer of the Order of Kazakhstan, awarded by the President Nursultan Nazarbayev, Bob became a very good friend of our community by offering support and taking active part in community events.
