A Polish concert celebrating Mary the Mother of Jesus will take place in St Georges Cathedral, Southwark, London at 4pm on 23 May.
The 'Maryja Matka' (Mary Mother) concert, dedicated specially to all mothers, will feature spiritual and contemporary songs, sung in both English and Polish, solo and with choir, by an array of accomplished artistes including from Poland, superstar Stanisław Soyka, plus Karolina Leszko and Kamil Franczak; soprano Ania Jeruc and baritone Marcin Gesla along with Amen Adoramus and the Polish Educational Society Schools Choir.
Amongst the songs to be performed will be Michał Lorenz's Ave Maria, A Mother's Prayer made famous by Celine Dione, Hail Holy Queen from the film Sister Act, the evergreen Polish ballads Matko Moja Ja Wiem and Do Ciebie Mamo, the iconic Matko Która Nas Znasz plus may other classics.
May is named the month of Mary. On May 26th, three days after the Maryja Matka concert, Poles will celebrate Mother's Day. Additionally, this year, five days before the concert on the 18th May will be the 100th Anniversary of Saint John Paul II's birthday - who took as his personal motto Totus Tuus consecrating himself to Mary the Mother of Jesus.
Everyone is warmly invited to make this May extra special by joining us at Southwark Cathedral.
Tickets available at £15 from: www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/maryja-matka-tickets-88656535083?aff=ebdssbeac
