10th Annual Slavic Choral Christmas Concert
  Lowiczanie Polish Folk Ensemble presents the 10th annual Slavic Choral Christmas Concert, a rich tapestry of seasonal carols and winter songs of East-Central Europe and the Balkans, featuring traditionally costumed Community artists from the Bulgarian, Croatian, Hungarian, Jewish, Moldovan, Polish, and Ukrainian Bay Area populations.

  The Slavic Choral Christmas Concert presents powerful to the lighted-hearted performances based on the rich fabric of East and Central-European and Balkan folk and sacred holiday music. The repertoire encompasses a multitude of mesmerizing styles ranging from simple folk themes ("pastorals") to close-harmonized sacred carols - all presented by Community Artists. The annual joyful Concert finale features over 60 artists onstage to lead a rousing audience sing-a-long of both European and American carols. The event's Central European holiday marketplace atmosphere is enhanced by seating under hand-hewn shingle "huts", spicy aromas of mulled cider & wine - one complimentary glass per ticket holder - and the opportunity to purchase hand-crafted artisan gifts.

THE ARTISTS: Lowiczanie Polish Carolers, directed by Jola Jankowska, together with Lowiczanie Folk Band musicians are joined by the Ukrainian Bay Area Carolers, Halyna Lorczak, director; Bulgarian Koledari Group, Tanya Kostova, director; Hungarian Folk Singing Circle, Zina von Bozzay, director; Dalyte Kodzis and Lilla Serlegi, who accompanies herself on the ancient, "old" Tamburitza, or "samica," present carols from Poland and the Croatian peoples of Hungary, respectively. The spiritual Christmas traditions of Serbia are represented by Baritone Ivan Vuksanovic.

  The two-hour program is visually beautiful - highlighted by traditional ethnic dress of the participating Slavic communities - and enriched by the virtuoso musical talents on display: Lowiczanie's folk orchestra ("Kapela" ) features Susan Worland on violin, Nicolai Prisicar on accordion and Roman Titcu, formerly of the internationally-renowned band, "Roma," (both are originally from Moldova) on cimbalom, and Pawel Walerowski of Poland on cello. Other musicial suprises feature artists from of Bulgarian, Croatian and Jewish backgrounds.
