Spring Has Sprung

On Sunday, April 27, 2008, members of the Wawel Folk Ensemble performed at the Our Lady Help of Christians/ Transfiguration Parish annual Spring Festial in Detroit, Michigan. The Ensemble presented its Cieszyn, Lubelski, and Rzeszow suites as well as the Karolina Polka.

Wawel performs annually at the festival and has close ties with the parish and parishoners. Additionally, the Transfiguration performance serves as the unofficial opening of Wawel's summer schedule. Pretty much from here to mid-October, most weekends will feature a Wawel performance (or two) somewhere in the Metro Detroit area.

In addition to the various summer festivals and weddings this summer, Wawel will also travel to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to participate in their annual Polish Fest, Wawel has participated in this event since 1998. In July, Wawel will travel to Rzeszow, Poland to participate in the triennial Rzeszow Folk Festival.
