“... sensational, a highlight of the year…one of the best-kept secrets in the business.” The Los Angeles Times


For over 100 years, the Warsaw Philharmonic has been one of Poland’s most distinguished musical institutions. The 2016-2017 season marks their 4th U.S. national and the first U.S. tour with Music and Artistic Director Jacek Kaspszyk, who was appointed in September 2013. The Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra blends two worlds into one, combining the folk sensibilities of Polish music with the presentation of a classically-trained orchestra. With the fluidity and lightness of Kaspszyk’s direction and a cast of highly accomplished players, the company’s immersive experience is not to be missed. The performance will feature South Korean pianist Seong-Jin Cho, the 21-year-old winner of the prestigious 2015 Chopin International Piano Competition.
