American Polish Cultural Center - 25th Anniversary Celebration

On Sunday, October 17, 2010, the American Polish Cultural Center in Troy, Michigan celebrated its 25th Anniversary. The event which featured dinner, dancing, proclamations and a silent auction also featured several Polish folk dance presentations.

Wawel was one of two metro area ensembles (Polanie being the second) that was invited to perform at the event. Before the evening's events, members of the ensemble greeted guests as they arrived and escorted them to their seats. At the beginning of the event, both ensembles led the audience in singing the Polish and American national anthems.

As is the Polish tradition, Wawel opened the evening's celebrations with the Polonez. Attired in the folk dress from the City of Zywiec and the Kontusz, the performance struck a perfect balance with the evening's jubilant atmosphere. As the evening progressed, Wawel performed a second time presenting its Sieradz suite. As one of the founding Ensemble's at the Polish Cultural Center, Wawel was very honored to be included in the event.
