Traditionally, at the end of the year The Polish Artistic Band of Song and Dance “Wilia” played two New Year’s concerts in The House of Polish Culture in Vilnius.

On Sunday, “Wilia” played two concerts at 1 and 5 PM. Each concert consisted of two parts. In part one, the band presented national dances, such as polonaise, Waltzes and carols. During the second part the audience had a chance to admire songs and dances from different Polish regions.

“The audience, as always, was great. Having a full house for two concerts right before such an important holiday is an immense satisfaction – said Renata Brasel, the band’s artistic director.
