It’s strange how it happens. Somewhere along the way, summer sort of passed us by. You turnaround and it’s Mid-September.
The past several weeks have been busy ones for the Wawel Folk Ensemble. On Saturday September 4, 2010, the Ensemble performed at a wedding in Sterling Heights, Michigan. At the outset, Wawel presented the bride and groom with bread and salt, as is the old Polish tradition. Following the presentation, Wawel then presented its Sieradz suite along with the Krakowiak.
On Monday, September 6, 2010, Wawel participated in the annual Polish Day Parade in Hamtramck, Michigan. Following the parade, Wawel performed in Hamtramck at its 30th Annual Labor Day Festival. During the Hamtramck performance, Wawel presented its Rzeszow and Sieradz suites along with the Krakowiak and the Karolina polka.
On Sunday, September 12, 2010, Wawel performed at St. Athanasius’ annual festival in Roseville, Michigan. During the St. Athanasius performance, Wawel presented its Sieradz, Rzeszow and Lubelski suites, along with the Krakowiak and the Karolina polka.
Wawel’s busy September continues this weekend with two private performances on Saturday evening.
