I’m delighted to share another wonderful project with you which was the singing competition called ‘Spiewowisko’ held in cooperation with Edukator Polish Saturday Schools (UK), Polish Heritage Days, Embassy of the Republic of Poland in London and IPN Gdansk. I was asked to help judge the final winners across the UK.
„ŚPIEWOWISKO” – konkurs dla dzieci z polskich szkół sobotnich. „Solidarność Integracja i Śpiew – niech połączy nas piosenka” pod tym hasłem Centrum Kształceniowe „Edukator” zorganizowało pierwszą edycję konkursu muzycznego „Śpiewowisko” w którym swoje talenty mogły zaprezentować dzieci z polskich szkół sobotnich w Wielkiej Brytanii.
🎶Below I am talking about my experience as a competition Judge on TV Polonia Magazyn Wysp – watch the TV article from 10.35 mins in 🎶 https://magazynzwysp.tvp.pl/spiewowisko 🎶
Here are some of the amazing singers 🎶 🎶 🎶. I am so inspired by the singing talents of the Polish Saturday School students that I would like to continue working on the project in 2022 and link it to the 10th Anniversary of my album Paszport (2012-2022). Watch this space!
I wanted to say a big thank you to Anna Jagelo, Amelia’s mamusia who has inspired my learning of Polish highlander Gorale songs and I will be visiting her Polish Saturday School in Canterbury soon to sing with the students !
