Polish Heritage Day 2019

October is the Month of Polish Heritage in America. In many places there are celebrations and events related to the promotion of Polish culture, history and customs. The Krakus Senior Center Choir took part in the Polish Heritage Day organized by Ms Danuta Świątek in Care One at Valley a Senior Care Facility and at the invitation of the THEOS Theater and Opera Society.

They represented the Polish & Slavic Center with proud and dignity. Ladies in beautiful white and red wreaths and gentlemen in Cracow hats conducted by Kasia Drucker presented folk songs from various regions of Poland.

There was also classical music. Mrs. Kasia Drucker sang solo "Wish" by Fryderyk Chopin and "Evening Song" by Stanisław Moniuszko. In the American part, the choir sang, among others, "My Dear I Love You" in the original version sung by Bobby Vinton, a Polish-American singer. Mrs. Kasia Drucker sang "Oh Shenandoah" and "Amazing Grace". At the end we sang Polish 100 years for one of the jubilees who have just finished 100 years. Our talented senior lady Ola Watras and David Musiał played the piano for us.

The audience was very delighted with our performance and sang with us. We received thunderous applause. There were tears of emotion from both sides and of course it was not without singing for an encore. We've already received an invitation to perform again. Special thanks to Director Artur Pustuła, thanks to whom we could get to the place and have the opportunity to bring a little Polish to others through singing.

The choir members:

Ladies: Stanisława Krzyś, Józefa Kopacz, Wanda Wójcik, Julia Garbacz, Marianna Prusaczyk, Grażyna Ostrowska, Ola Watras, Mieczysław Jaksik.

Gentlemen: Alojzy Jaksik, Waldemar Ostrowski, Tadeusz Nowak, Stanisław Kulczycki
