Last Friday at the Complex of Primary School and Kindergarten in Witoszyce 15th edition of Interschool Christmas Carol Contest was held. The competition became the part of the canon of most important events of both the school and the region. As one of its sponsors we couldn’t miss the event!
In this year’s edition 72 participants from 28 schools from all over Poland and beyond! The performers were divided into 6 groups. From preschoolers to masters who had already been the winners. High level of performance left no illusions- the assessment was extremely difficult. The youngest group of performers was all awarded first place! In the remaining groups the jury decided to award a few awards ex aequo.
This year’s jury included Brygida Pawlak, financial-administrative director of OSI POLAND FOODWORKS:
„What characterized the awarded participants was not only flawless performance of difficult pieces but also wide scale of their voices, sensitivity of expression and artistic maturity. Several performers also accompanied their singing on organ and violin”- she said.
Befriended musical group Lilia from Sądowa Wisznia in Ukraine came at the special invitation of Leszek Stecki, the Director of the Complex. Members of the group include children of Polish families living beyond the eastern border of Poland. The concert of the group imbued with folklore and offering an ideal combination of two nationalities introduced amazing atmosphere of emotions. On daily basis the children attend Ukrainian school whereas at the weekend they study in Polish institute where they learn the language, get to know the culture and the history of Poland. Their remarkable determination and the level of effort required for their daily learning deserves outstanding recognition.
Following the tradition, each participant of the contest received a teddy bear! This year 65 soft toys were funded by OSI POLAND FOODWORKS.
We heartily congratulate the winners and wish them further successful singing career. We bow our heads before the organizers of the competition recognizing professional preparation and constant development of the Competition, which attracts more and more participants year by year.
See you next year!
