„To the National and the Homeland” on the 10th of November in the ICE Kraków Congress Centre

The Mixed Marian Choir operating at the Parish of Our Lady of Lourdes in Krakow organises a concert of the National Day of Independence again. This year’s concert has the motto „To the National and the Homeland” will be held on the 10th of November at 6.00 pm in the ICE Kraków Congress Centre.

The concert is under the honorary patronage of the President of the Republic of Poland Andrzej Duda.

The Choir invited accomplished vocalists known from the opera stage.

The Matian Choir will sing under the baton of Dr Rybarski. Słowianki Dance Ensemble at the Jagiellonian University will give a dance performance. Visualisations of the struggle for independence on a huge screen will transfer us to history.
