Lira Singers to perform Polish music, song and dance at St. John Brebeuf March 8
The Lira Singers, long trusted by Polish Americans as expert “culture bearers,” will perform at St. John Brebeuf (SJB), 8307 N. Harlem, Niles, on Saturday, March 8, at 8 p.m. Presented by St. John Brebeuf Parish and sponsored by The Niles Bugle, the performance is part of an on-going concert series which began last year to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the parish. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children under 15 for the event which is open to the entire community.
"With a mission to present the full spectrum of Polish music and dance, both classical and folk, the Lira Ensemble is the nation’s only professional performing arts company specializing in Polish music, song and dance" SJB Music Director Marek Rachelski said. "Their English language narrations that are both witty and informative explain the traditions and history behind each work."
Other upcoming programs include
a special Lenten presentation of both John Rutter and Gabriel Faure’s Requiems
by the Niles Metropolitan Chorus & Musica Lumina on Sunday, April 13, at 3
p.m. and the Land of Lakes Choirboys on Tuesday, June 17, at 7 p.m.
