December 2 & 3/2 & 3 Grudnia

On Friday, December 2, 2011, members of the Wawel Folk Ensemble performed at the Polish American Legal Society's Christmas Party, held at the American Polish Cultural Center in Troy, Michigan. The ensemble presented its Sieradz, Podlasie, and Rzeszow suites, as well as the Krakowiak and the Karolina polka. The group looked seasonally appropriate in their Sieradz stroj, which feature a good amount of red. The pieces for the men's stroj were recently acquired on the ensemble's trip to Poland in July, 2011.

Saturday, December 3, 2011 was the Wawel Folk Ensemble's annual Christmas party. Big thank yous go out to Janet and Paul for opening their home to the ensemble for this annual celebration of food and merriment. The Wawel Christmas party is always a great time to catch up with the other members of the zespol, to reflect on the past year's successes and events, and to look forward to the exciting events that are coming up.

Wawel's next public appearance will be at Sweetest Heart of Mary Church in Detroit, Michigan at its Pasterka mass on Christmas Eve at midnight. Wawel members will participate in procession at the mass and will appropriately be dressed in Podhalanski stroj. Witojcie. Hej!

Be sure to check back to this blog and other sites for frequent updates. Wawel already has several bookings for the 2012 season. These include some old favorites as well as some new adventures. Appearances booked for 2012 so far include, but are in now way limited to, an appearance at the annual Festival of Polish Folk Dance at the American Polish Cultural Center, and at Polish Fest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
