Hamilton’s Croatian Man of the Year – Sept. 27, 2016

 

Yesterday in the House of Commons, I had the honour of congratulating Hamiltonian Michael Loncarich, who was selected by The Ontario Federation of CFU Lodges as “Man of the Year 2016”.

For most of his life, Michael Loncarich has been a driving force in preserving and growing Croatian culture, mainly through his brilliant talent as a tambura player and teacher. His work and performances have extended throughout Canada, the United States, Croatia and England, and his talents are captured on a number of recordings with the Silver String Serenaders and Seoski Lopovi. In addition to his musical career, Michael Loncarich was a very successful businessman, operating his own company EA Abrasives for many years.

Congratulations!
