Choral Patriotism: The Polish Singers Alliance of America

Choral Patriotism: The Polish Singers
Alliance of America, 1888-1998

by Stanislaus A. Blejwas


This book examines the history of the Polish Singers Alliance of America as an ideological organization. As a case study of an immigrant cultural organization that evolved demographically into an ethnic organization of the succeeding generations, it documents the extent to which the politics of the homeland engaged an immigrant and ethnic community over a century.

This is a study of immigrant nationalism, as articulated by immigrant and ethnic singing societies. The survival of the Alliance as an ideological organization suggests considerations about the ability of an immigrant and ethnic culture to resist and to adapt to America's assimilative powers.

“This is a superb treatment of the formation and expansion of the oldest Polish-American cultural organization in North America. Professor Blejwas makes the times come alive as he interweaves history with the growth of the PSAA.”
