The Foundation’s Annual Fundraising Dinner and Ball will take place on Saturday, April 22, at the Plaza in NYC. This year we will celebrate the achievements of Polish musicians and recognize two leading figures who shaped the scene and image of Polish music in the world.
The Foundation’s Medal of Recognition will be presented to Urszula Dudziak, a world-renowned Polish jazz vocalist who performed with some of the greatest jazz artists in almost all countries in Europe, Asia, and the Americas, who recorded nearly 50 albums of which “Newborn Light” was recognized by the prestigious American “Down Beat” magazine, and who was named the Singer of the Year by the Los Angeles Times.
During the Ball, we will also honor, with the Foundation’s Medal of Recognition, Waldemar Dabrowski, General Manager of the Grand Theater – Polish National Opera, and former Minister of Culture, a visionary leader in the field of classical music whose pioneering initiatives led to the advancement of the Polish cultural scene and encouraged an appreciation for Poland’s rich national heritage worldwide.
