On September 18th, 2010 Kosciuszko Foundation in Washington D.C. has hosted very special guests. As the result of cooperation between the Foundation and the Roanoke Valley Sister Cities International, we were proud to bring to Washington's community one of the finest, young artists – the future of Polish classical music. The concert was a part of the 200th Anniversary of F. Chopin's Birth. Maria Strzelczyk (violin), Kamil Labusga (piano), Patryk Grzesiura (piano) and Mr. Wojciech Kopczak (piano) wowed the audience with their masterful performance of Chopin's famous polonaises, waltzes and ballades as well as the music pieces by other European composers.
The group was brought to the United States thanks to a great involvement of Mrs. Krystyna Slowikowski, a chairperson of Roanoke Valley Sister City Opole, Poland Group. The students turned out not only to be phenomenal musicians but also just great kids, fascinated with America and eager to come back next year to explore it a little more.
