CHRISTMAS CONCERT - Your favorite Polish, Czech, Slovak Christmas Carols!

Singing connects people, it is especially important to gather around the Christmas table and sing carols from our cultures. We decided to join forces to celebrate Christmas and to connect Slovaks, Czechs and Poles who are neighbours, speak similar languages, have similar culture and folklore and sing similar KOLEDY (meaning "Christmas Carols" in Polish, Czech and Slovak) but don't have much opportunity to connect in Toronto.
