Pine Ridge Villas of Shelby

On Wednesday, January 26, 2011, the Wawel Folk Ensemble performed at a Polish Night for residents of the Pine Ridge Villas of Shelby in Shelby Township, Michigan. The performance was Wawel's first of 2011.

For not having a public performance in a little over a month, Wawel got 2011 off with a bang presenting an hour long program for the residents. The program featured Wawel's Sieradz, Lubelski, Cieszyn, Rzeszow and Lowicz suites as well as the Krakowiak and Kadzioleczka. At the conclusion of the performance, Wawel members grabbed some of the residents in attendance and led them in a polka along. A good time was had by all.

Wawel's next public appearance will be at Bal Radiowy on January 29, 2011 at the American Polish Cultural Center in Troy, Michigan.

Lots more to come in 2011. We hope you'll check back soon for all the latest happenings.
