The sounds of the Christmas season echoed in St. Gabriel Church on Clinton St., Elma on Jan 8, 2022 for the annual Festival of Carols presented by District IX of the Polish Singers Alliance of America.

About 200 people were in attendance to here the Kalina Singing Society, the Chopin Singing Society and soloist Haley Brunstad.

“It’s great, I love it,” said John Chrzanowski of Cheektowaga. The former member of St. Adalbert Basilica in Buffalo remarked: “They were wonderful. Two thumbs up, 10 fingers up!”

When asked if she enjoyed the concert, Jen Jagodzinski of Depew replied, “Very much.” She said the concert was “very inspiring.”

Judith Winnert of West Seneca attended the festival with family for an afternoon out and gave it “five stars.” A family member noted, “Haley was really good.”

One spectator who asked not to be named said that although he was of Polish ancestry “a lot of songs I’ve never heard.”

The Kalina Singing Society began the program with these carols: Star of the East by Greg Gilpin, Gdy Sliczna Panna, Przylecieli Aniolkowie - Little Angels Came, Narodzil Sie Jezus Chrystus, Jezus Malusienki in an arr. by Wlodzimierz Soltysik and Spij Jezuniu.

Soloist Brunstad performed Mary, Did You Know?, Dzisiaj w Betlejem and O Holy Night.

The Chopin Singing Society followed with: Witaj, Jezu Dzieciatko (Welcome, Child Jesus), Witaj, Gwiazdo Zlota - by Zygmunt Noskowski, Bracia Patrzcie Jeno (men only), Chwala Bogu w Wysokosci (women only), Przy onej Gorze, Wiwat Dzisiaj (Hail, The Light of God's eternal day!), O Jozefie! (O, Saint Joseph) and Wesola Nowina.

The finale sung by all the performers included O Krolowie and Medrcy Swiata.

It was the first time the festival was not held at St. Stanislaus Church in Buffalo. President of the Central Administration of the Polish Singers Alliance of America Mary Lou Wyrobek said, “We enjoyed our 35-plus years of presenting this Festival of Carols at the Mother Church of Polonia, St. Stanislaus, but hoped to reach out to new audiences after a 2020 where we were unable to perform. We also changed the timing of this concert from early Advent to the end of the Christmas Season hoping to bring a little joy into January when activities are sometimes few and far between.  Fr. Walter Grabowski, pastor of St. Gabriel Church, graciously extended an invitation to us some time ago, so we changed our venue to another church with a strong Polish-American population.

Wyrobek added: “ Their hospitality in offering a wonderful reception after the concert and the large, appreciative audience was most generous.  Of course, the beautiful decorations, enhanced by a wonderful lighting display, added to the festivity of the event.  

“Another change this year, was being unable to host our Canadian Choirs from Hamilton due to COVID.  In their place, we invited a Polish Singers Alliance of America Scholarship winner and parishioner of St. Gabriel's, Haley Brunstad, to offer her talents for the delight of the audience, and delightful, she was!”  

She extended the Alliance’s appreciation for the efforts of “our talented directors, Dr. Thomas Witakowski and Ed Witul, and accompanist Don Jenczka, as well as our host, Fr. Walter Grabowski, and all who attended the concert for making it so enjoyable for the singers.”
