Georgia Veru

Georgia Veru has released an album, Metaphrasis, a celebration of Greek-American culture, capturing her lifelong passion for Greek music and American musical style. She and her husband, Ted, are long-time members of Leadership 100. The album features the Greek sounds of Zembekiko and Sirto, as well as Greek songs arranged in swing mode and American Country style. Highlights include Greek adaptations of “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina”, “An Affair to Remember” and “Alejate” and feature the styling of the popular Greek-American musician, Gus Vali. The album was produced by Ted Veru and Dean Vali.

Georgia attributes her love of the Greek language to her Greek American heritage beginning with her great grandfather’s arrival in the United Sates a century ago and continued down to her American-born parents. She pursued her interest in music from a young age, graduating from the Fiorello H. LaGuardia School of Music and Art and Performing Arts in New York City, which gained world-wide renown through the TV series Fame.
