A polka Mass featuring the Singing Slovenes will take place starting at 5 p.m. Saturday, July 18 at the Catholic Church in downtown St. Stephen.
Everyone is invited to the musical Mass.
The ever-popular Singing Slovenes, who have performed many times in St. Stephen, are a non-profit group based in Duluth who perform far and wide, promoting Slovenian culture, music and language. St. Stephen has long been one of the most notable Slovenian-populated towns in the nation.
Slovenia is an alpine country nestled between Italy, Austria, Hungary and Croatia.
The Singing Slovenes dress in traditional costumes and perform mainly polka music, accompanied by accordion, guitars and drums. Its members represent many nationalities, not just Slovenians.
