The Vancouver Chopin Society: Maria Pomianowska and Her Folk Band – October 14, 2017
October 14, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 7:30 pm
The Vancouver Chopin Society begins its 20th anniversary season with the local debut of Maria Pomianowska and her Folk Band on Saturday, October 14, 2017 at 3pm & 7:30pm at the Vancouver Playhouse.
In the first part of this concert titled, A Journey into Chopin’s music inspiration, the internationally renowned Pomianowksa, alongside a virtuosic ensemble, will conjure traditional sounds of Poland’s countryside in a hypnotizing musical journey. Performing on instrument replicas of Frédéric Chopin’s era, and joined by Vancouver’s Polonez Dance Group, these artists will share unparalleled renditions of the works that fuelled Chopin’s genius. In the programme’s second half, 30 artists including Vancouver’s finest string and world music performers will take the stage to imagine Chopin’s inspirations in present-day Paris, and the exhilarating cross-cultural collaborations that could have transpired.
