Holiday Greetings

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the Wawel Folk Ensemble. Thanks very much to everyone who came to shows or supported the group in 2009. We look forward to seeing you again in 2010.

2010 will be an exciting year. In June and July Wawel will participate in the Polish Folk Dance Association of the Americas Festival held in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. The event will feature Polish Folk Ensembles from all over the United States and Canada, as well as a gala performance of Polish dances and workshops taught by choreographers from Poland.

Wawel's first performance of 2010 will be at St. Dorothy's Polish Night in February 2010. In March Wawel will participate in the third annual Polish Folk Dance Festival at the American Polish Cultural Center and the annual blessing of the Polish Folk Dance Ensembles Mass held at St. Hyacinth Parish in Detroit, Michigan.

See you in 2010!

Felician Sisters - St. Nicholas Day 2009

On Sunday, December 6, 2009, members of the Wawel Folk Ensemble performed for a St. Nicholas Day party for the Felician Sisters at the Felician Sisters' Motherhouse located in Livonia, Michigan.

Wawel has performed for the Felician Sisters for their St. Nicholas Day event for the past several years. For this year's party Wawel performed its Sieradz, Podlasie, and Lowicz suites as well as the Kadzialeczka and the Karolina Polka. The performance concluded with a polka along with the Sisters and their guests.

The December 6 performance marked the close of Wawel's 2009 season. The members of the ensemble will now take some time off to enjoy the holidays and gear up for the 2010 performance year.
