Chopin Birthday Gala – February 22, 2015

Every year the Chopin Foundation celebrates Chopin’s birthday with a concert, and this year’s program will include some of Chopin’s greatest masterworks including all four of the Ballades, Polonaise-Fantaisie, Andante spianato et grande polonaise brillante, the second scherzo, as well as excerpts from the preludes, nocturnes, and mazurkas. Performers include Daniel Glover, Gwendolyn Mok, Robert Schwartz, Nancy Lee Harper, Heidi Hau, Corey McVicar, Hanson Tam, William Wellborn, Mack McCray, and others. The performance will be followed by a champagne reception with the artists.
