The Lira Ensemble Polish Carols, Song and Dance
Mina Zikri, Conductor
Iwona Puc, Choreographer
with Guest Pianist, 14 year-old Daniel Szefer
A delightful holiday concert featuring beloved Polish and American carols, exciting folk songs and dances, colorful, authentic costumes—all narrated in English.
Founded as the Lira Singers in 1965, the ensemble makes about 50 appearances a year in the Chicago area, across the Midwest, occasionally around the nation, and has made six concert tours of Poland. Lira has produced nine major recordings that are sold nationwide.
Long trusted as an expert "culture bearer" Lira presents the full spectrum of Polish music and dance, both classical and folk, with informative and witty English language narrations that explain the traditions and history behind the works performed.
