4:00 – 6:00 PM Singing workshop led by Julita Charytoniuk

Old Town Hall in Gdańsk, 33/35 Korzenna Street


During the workshop we will learn songs from north-eastern Poland. These will be single and multi-voice pieces which I learned from the oldest singers: songs related to rituals (e.g. weddings), as well as love songs, sung without a special occasion, during work or social meetings. The workshop is aimed at those who have already sung traditional songs and to those who would like to try singing together.
