Fermilab Art Series presents:
Lira Ensemble: Music & Dance of Poland
May 5, 2007 @ 8 p.m.
Tickets - $20/$10 ages 18 and under

Celebrating the Chicago area’s rich Polish heritage, the Fermilab Arts Series is proud to present The Lira Ensemble, the only professional performing arts company in the United States specializing in Polish music, song, and dance. The Ensemble's five performing groups present the music of Poland, sung in the original language, and Polish folk and court dances, with narratives in English, accompanied by folkloric musicians.

The Lira Singers, the female ensemble which is the core of the company, is made up of eight to fourteen young women, and is one of the few professional, fine arts female vocal groups in the Midwest. The Singers perform in authentic, colorful folk garb from various regions of Poland, in period gowns, or in traditional concert dress, depending on the music performed. The performance will also include dance and live music.
