Polish classical music

Adam Piotr Żukiewicz, a Polish pianist who has performed across Europe, United States, Canada, Japan and Brazil and Tulio Rondón, a cellist and gambist who has performed throughout the United States, Middle East and North and South America will perform pieces of music by Frederic Chopin and Witold Lutoslawski.
Pawel Izdebski gained his international reputation for a voice of beautiful timbre, a range extending from the lowest bass notes well into the baritone, and an effective stage presence.
The Sonora Ensemble will present Polish classical music on oboe, clarinet and fagot. The musicians include Anastasiya Nyzkodub, Marta Troicki, and Brendon Bushman.
The Mirandola Ensemble is a choral music ensemble based in Minneapolis working to bring choral music, Renaissance aesthetics, and education to audiences throughout the Twin Cities and neighboring communities.
