Monday, February 27, 2006


Sunday, February 26, 2006 was a busy day for members of the Wawel Folk Ensemble.

In the morning, members of the Ensemble participated in the 4th Annual Blessing of Polish Folk Dance Ensembles at St. Hyacinth's parish in Detroit, MI. This event has become a tradition that the ensemble looks forward to every year. The Ensemble was well represented and looked quite authentic in its Opoczno costumes.

After mass, the Ensemble performed at a Polish Dinner held at Our Lady Help of Christians, also in Detroit, MI. The group performed a short program consisting of the Krakowiak, Opoczno and Karolina Polka.

American Polish Cultural Center Anniversary

On Saturday, February 25, 2006, the Ensemble performed its recently revamped Polonez at the 20th Anniversary Dinner Dance of the American Polish Cultural Center in Troy, MI.

Many dignataries were in attendance, including United States Senator, Debbie Stabenow (D-Michigan). Senator Stabenow was quite impressed with the Ensemble's performance and while taking photos with the group afterward commented on how she wished the Ensemble would have performed more dances.

This performance marked the debut of several new Wawel members.
