Slavic & E European Choral Christmas Concert
The 13th Slavic and East European Choral Christmas Concert delivers a glorious tapestry of traditional carols and winter songs sourced from the rich textures of East European folk and sacred holiday music. They are sung and played in styles ranging from simple, time-honored folk themes to sacred carols rendered in four-part harmonies.

Professionals and Community artists, dressed in authentic regional costumes, perform beloved seasonal repertoire from Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Moldova, Poland, and Ukraine.

The Christmas traditions of Poland are presented by the Lowiczanie Polish Carolers, directed by Jola Jankowska. They are joined by the Tobak Family Band featuring the husband-wife team of professional folklorists Lilla Serlegi and Ferenc Tobak, both born and raised in Hungary, who present their Hungarian holiday traditions together in voice with their children. The Ukrainian Kolyada Singers, directed by Andriy Kryshtafovych have joined the concert since its inception, and the Bulgarian Koledari Singers, accompanied by musicians and children singers, directed by Tanya Kostova are a perennial favorite. Members of the Dalmacijo Croatian chorus happily join the program after several years absence and once again the Producers welcome the electrifying music of Hurra! Band, vocals by Natalia Ukrainska, presenting holiday  music of Trans-Carpathia.  Featured virtuosos are Moldovan accordionist Nicolai Prisicar and cimbalom maestro, Roman Titcu,.

The concert concludes with the audience-favorite sing-a-long of East-European carols in several languages. The performers may even treat audience members to a line-dance in front of the stage to close out the evening!

Concert-goers can arrive early to enjoy a complimentary glass of hot mulled cider or wine (grzaniec in Polish), a full dinner, as well as homemade pastries (separately sold). A small folklore table offers holiday shopping opportunities including hand-crocheted tree ornaments from Poland.

The Slavic Christmas Concert is produced by Lowiczanie Polish Folk Ensemble of San Francisco, and the Tobak Hungarian Family Band, and co-sponsored by the Croatian-American Cultural Center.
