The Casimir Cultural Center is honored to be the home of the Polish Heritage Choir of Johnstown.
The preservation of Polish music in our region is rooted in both the histories of the former St. Casimir Parish and the St. Casimir’s Society (Polski Dom) in Cambria City. The current choir was organized in 1988.
Since the parish closing in 2009, the Choir has performed at numerous events and concerts throughout the Johnstown region working tirelessly to preserve their language, identity and traditions.
As the mother church of the Polish parishes in the Johnstown region, St. Casimir was the center of the preservation of Polish Catholic culture.
Today, the Casimir Cultural Center provides a similar purpose. While celebrating various cultures and ethnic heritages, Casimir serves as the region’s premier center of the preservation and celebration of Polish traditions cherished by so many in our area for over a century.
