Poland's most distinctive music is as sweet as its finest dessert; Mazur and Mazurek, respectively (Mazurka in English); baked only at Easter time. The weekend before Easter this year, we'll be enjoying both at Polish Hall - admission: $15, all inclusive (entertainment and desserts).
Mazurek cakes, baked in local Polish kitchens, will be served with coffee and tea. Selected fine Polish liqueurs will be available (in moderation, of course) at Grandpas' cafe, in the lower level of Polish Hall.

The musical mazurka (in Polish, mazurek ) traditionally accompanies a Polish folk dance in triple meter, usually at a lively tempo, accented on the second or third beat, though there are slower, more lyrical ones as well. Show includes a cameo appearance by Agnieszka Laska Dancers - a few pieces from the Chopin Project.

Anne Young - piano

Tatiana Kolchanova - violin

Mary Rowell - viola

guest artist - Krzysztof Kaminski
