"When one does something from the bottom of their heart, they enchant us with their magnetism,. I want to end with the words of Hazrat Ianian Khan: “Movement is the meaning of life and the principle of movement is rhythm. Rhythm is life, turned into movement…”. Just like an explosion of rhythm is the performance of Ensemble HORO which with the diversity in their repertoire, with the typical traits of the Bulgarian folk dance has turned into an exceptionally important factor in preserving the of the Bulgarian identity in Chicago.” Iva Ginova - Bulgaria Newspaper "Keep promoting the richness, colorfulness, and the magic of the Bulgarian Folk Dance! You are deep into the hearts of thousands of Bulgarians in Chicago." Iva Ginova - Bulgaria Newspaper

"The first solo concert of Ensemble Horo was a complete success. In the vast theatre of the Irish Cultural Center, in the heart of Chicago, friends and guests were gathered to see what has been compiled for less than two years by the performers and founders of the Ensemble. The show started. In the background of the lyrical melodies a slideshow was playing with pictures from the most essential Bulgarian History moments, as well as folk costumes from different ethnographic areas and the viewers were able to get a whole picture of the ethnic and cultural life in Bulgaria. Christmas folk songs started and the magic began…They surpassed our expectations.” Jivka Petrova - Bulgaria Newspaper

“Irina and Todor – talent, professionalism, and harmony! To this I can add – performers, choreographers, wonderful teachers, and organizers.” Elena Tzaneva - Bulgaria now Newspaper

“…and we, the Bulgarians in Chicago, are all thankful to Irina and Todor Gotchevi for their talent, love and faith, and for the fact that even far from the motherland, they found fellow countrymen in whom the love for the Bulgarian tradition and folk dance is still alive and they made HORO together to enchant and mesmerize…” Kina Bagovska – Start Newspaper
