Chór Echo Doliny
The National Polish Folk Choir of Great Britain gave its first performance in 2009 as part of the Polish Folklore Festival at Symphony Hall, Birmingham. Its initial remit was to bring people together from folk ensembles across the country to sing the opening and closing songs of the festival. After much demand, the choir, with its new name Echo Doliny (meaning echo of the valley), was re-formed in January 2011.
Based in Birmingham and conducted by Urszula Weber, the 60-strong choir specialises in choral arrangements of traditional Polish folksongs. Rehearsals are run on a project-by-project basis with members from different folk groups travelling from all over the country. Echo Doliny welcomes anyone, young or old, Polish or not, who has a love of singing! Also performing alongside the choir is Dolinki (little valleys), a female vocal ensemble made up of members of Echo Doliny.
The choir is delighted to be taking part in the huge project ‘Equinox’, an official 2012 Olympics event at Symphony Hall, Birmingham.
