Hamtramck Historical Commission Event

On Sunday, November 17, 2008, members of the Wawel Folk Ensemble participated in a concert in support of the Hamtramck Historical Museum. The fundraiser, which was held at St. Hugo of the Hills Parish in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan included 8 different piano and vocal performances, as well as a silent auction and reception.

During the reception, Wawel performed its suite of dance from the town of Nowy Sącz. The proceeds from the event will benefit the Hamtramck Historical Commission as they work to preserve Hamtramck’s rich and varied history. Instrumental in the planning of the event, which raised over $10,000 for the Hamtramck Historical Commission, was long-time Wawel friend, Curtis Posuniak.

Wawel will do two private performances in December. Wawel’s next public appearance will be on December 24, 2008 at Sweetest Heart of Mary’s Pasterka Mass, which is a long held tradition in Polonia as well as for the ensemble.
