When George DemetriosGrachis arrived in America in 1907, he was already a master instrument maker and an accomplished violinist. By 1910, he launched the Terpandros instrument workshop in Chicago’s Greektown. Later, he and santouri player Spyros Stamos (1894-1973) owned Chicago’s Greek Record Company, which was between 1922 and 1923. For decades, he toured the county as an acclaimed musician.
