The Polish National Song and Dance Ensemble, “Śląsk,” will perform on June 6 on the University of Nevada, Reno campus in the Nightingale Concert Hall. The event serves as a welcome celebration to Polish representatives visiting Reno for a trade and cultural mission. It also recognizes the efforts of the country to welcome more than 3 million Ukrainian refugees since the onset of the Russia-Ukraine war in February 2022.
Admission to the performance is free and open to the public. The doors will open at 6 p.m., and the event will begin at 7 p.m., with a welcome from University President Brian Sandoval.
The visiting representatives, including the members of the “Śląsk” ensemble, come from Poland’s province of Śląskie. The group, led by the province’s Marshal Jakub Chetstowski, is visiting Nevada to sign a memorandum of understanding with the State of Nevada related to business and trade cooperation.
Members of the University and larger Reno-Sparks community are encouraged to attend the performance to show their solidarity with Poland and its support of Ukrainian refugees. Interested individuals can also help Ukrainian refugees by donating to the Polish Consulate Relief Fund.
