The Polish National Song and Dance Ensemble, “Śląsk”, will perform on June 6 on the campus of the University of Nevada, Reno, in the Nightingale Concert Hall. The event serves as a welcome celebration for Polish officials visiting Reno on a trade and cultural mission. It also recognizes the country’s efforts to host more than 3 million Ukrainian refugees since the start of the Russian-Ukrainian war in February 2022.
Admission to the show is free and open to the public. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. and the event will begin at 7:00 p.m. with a welcome from University President Brian Sandoval.
The invited representatives, including members of the “Śląsk” ensemble, come from the Polish province of Śląskie. The group, led by Provincial Marshal Jakub Chetstowski, travels to Nevada to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the State of Nevada regarding business and commercial cooperation.
Members of the University and the greater Reno-Sparks community are encouraged to attend the show to show their solidarity with Poland and support for Ukrainian refugees. Interested persons can also help Ukrainian refugees by donating to the Polish Consulate Relief Fund.
