RIVERCHASE, AL -

Some Shelby County students got a taste of the traditions and culture of Poland recently.

The Lira Ensemble, the only professional performing arts group in the United States who specialize in traditional Polish music, song, and dance, performed at Riverchase Middle School April 12, 2013.

The group performed to the choir and ESL classes at RMS.

The performers were at the school as part of the Birmingham International Center's focus on Poland.

Their performance included songs in Polish, storytelling of Polish folklore, explanation of traditional Polish dress, instruction of simple phrases in Polish, and a piano presentation featuring the music of Poland's most famous composer Frederic Chopin.

The students presented gifts as tokens of their appreciation to the Lira Ensemble and to the representative of the Birmingham International Center.
