The U.S. Embassy in Warsaw is pleased to invite you to tune in to our Facebook page to view a “Virtual Summer Concert Series” that will take place on three consecutive Thursdays in July (July 2, 9, and 16). The concerts — all lasting from 7:00 – 7:45 pm Warsaw time, and transmitted live via the U.S. Embassy’s Facebook page — will be performed by three accomplished American and Polish musicians. All three musicians are prestigious Fulbright Scholars who were awarded Fulbright fellowships in America and Poland.
The first artist will be Pamela Howland, a talented American pianist who will take us on a pre-U.S. Independence Day journey of American patriotic and popular songs from her home on the East Coast of the United States. Ms. Howland was a Fulbright Scholar at the renowned Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan from 2017–18 where she taught American music and conducted research on Poland’s favorite son, the illustrious Fryderyk Chopin. While in Poland, Ms. Howland also gave 35 concerts that included performances for the U.S. Diplomatic Mission, audiences in Denmark, and the Polish public. Her passion for playing classical music to creatively connect people around the world has won her accolades near and far. Fred Child, host of American Public Media’s popular NPR classical radio program PERFORMANCE TODAY described Ms. Howland as being ”on a fascinating musical journey.” You don’t want to miss this, so be sure to join us for Ms. Howland’s next, fascinating journey by tuning in to the Embassy’s Facebook page on Thursday, July 2 at 19:00 (Warsaw time).
Following Ms. Howland’s concert, the next enchanting stops of our virtual music journey will be conducted by the talented Polish musician and Fulbright Scholar Magdalena Sas (July 9) and by the accomplished American musician and Fulbright Scholar Tomasz Robak (July 16). Don’t miss these rare opportunities to take a virtual concert tour of the beautiful musical heritage of both America and Poland from the convenience of your personal computing or communication devices. You won’t regret it.
Here is to the long, lasting, and deepening friendship of the American and Polish peoples!
