Polish Music at Polish Hall - inauguration of the Year of Oskar Kolberg on his birthday!

2014 was proclaimed Kolberg Year by The Minister of Culture and National Heritage of Poland. Oskar Kolberg was born February 22nd, 1814 - join us in celebrating his birthday with an evening of chamber music by Polish composers, setting a variety of rich and vivid Polish folk music, inspiring many over centuries.

Mary Rowell (Violin/Viola) and Tatiana Kolchanova (violin/piano) are professional musicians and teachers who met at a gig. They had so much fun playing together they decided to continue. Their mission is to share their love of the duet repertoire with the world. There are so many original compositions written for two instruments and they want to share.

Oskar Kolberg, whose father Juliusz was German-born engineer and whose mother Karolina Mercoeur was of French origin, spent his whole life and career as composer documenting the folk culture of his adopted homeland. Once a younger friend of Fryderyk Chopin, he believed that Poland would one day rise again precisely thanks to the preservation of its culture, a pillar of which was its symbolic and artistic folk tradition. This was a cause he decided to contribute to with his talent and a lifetime of hard work. His dreams have come true, and we owe him our gratefulness and praise for his effort.

POLISH MUSIC AT POLISH HALL in 2014 is supported by Multnomah County Cultural Coalition, Oregon Cultural Trust, Polish Library Association, St Stanislaus Parish an Polish Festival. Concert piano thanks to Michelle's Pianos.
