The original festival was intended to showcase the talents of Lackawanna area choirs and to share with the rest of the community their particular ethnic songs and traditions. The revival will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday in St. Michael the Archangel Church, corner of Warsaw Street and Electric Avenue, Lackawanna. Other participants in the festival will be the Hungarian Ensemble from Assumption Church, Lake Erie Italian Club Choir, Young Christian Choir from St. Anthony's Church, St. Hyacinth Men's Choir and groups from Our Mother of Good Counsel Church and St. Barbara's Church.
