It is amazing to think that in just a few weeks the world will be celebrating the 200 birthday of one of the greatest musical icons the world has ever had, that is of course Frederic Francois Chopin. It is also amazing to think that he died not much older then me at the very young age of 39. I will be honest with you I did not fall in love with Chopin's music until I started my tenure at the Liberace Museum. Liberace loved Chopin, so much so, that he acquired the very Pleyel piano that was used by Cornel Wilde in the 1945 biographical movie about Chopin "A Song to Remember."
On October 2 a wonderful and unique concert will take place at the Springs Preserve
in honor of the Polish composers birthday. A celebration of life and music that will take us back 2 centuries to reminisce about the Romantic Era that brought us national revolutions, revolutions in music, revolutions in science and revolutions in industry. Please join me for this is an event not to be missed.
This event is being sponsored by the Honorary Consulate of the Republic of Poland in Las Vegas and or contact his Honorable Consul John Petkus at http://www.polishconsullv.com/
