Wawel at Sweetest Heart of Mary Pierogi Festival

On Sunday, August 9, 2015, members of the Wawel Folk Ensemble performed at Sweetest Heart of Mary Church’s annual Pierogi Festival in Detroit, Michigan.  Wawel’s performance included the Krakowiak, its Cieszyn and Biłgoraj suites, along with the debut performance of Wawel’s new Polka Warszawska and Wawel’s Saxonet Polka.

Following the performance, members of the ensemble remained at the Festival enjoying the music of the Coachmen and a late summer’s evening.

Wawel has a history with Sweetest Heart of Mary Church going back at least 38 years.  Wawel performs annually at the church’s Pierogi Festival and also participates in the processions on Christmas Eve for Pasterka and at the Easter Sunday Sunrise service.

2015 marks Wawel’s 50th Anniversary.  Please continue to check this blog and Wawel’s Facebook page for anniversary events.  Currently a dinner dance is scheduled for November 21, 2015 at the American Polish Century Club in Sterling Heights, Michigan and a Gala Concert is scheduled for December 5, 2015.

Wawel’s next public appearance will be on September 7, 2015 at the Hamtramck Labor Day parade.
