We wish you and yours health and prosperity in the new year.
2023 promises to be a celebration for Sounds and Notes Foundation marking the 7th anniversary of the Chopin IN the City Festival which will take place from February 22nd through February 26th.
It is with the generous support of patrons of the arts like yourself that we can continue to propel our goal of bringing talented musicians and artists from around the world to share their gifts of music, theater, art, dance, and film with Chicago.
This year we will feature everything from a 9-year-old pianist, a freeform duo in collaboration with a violinist virtuoso, a Japanese multi-instrumentalist, and an award-winning vocalist, and Polish husband and wife guitar duo, to a Bandurist from Chernivtsi, a Puerto Rican orchestra, and an impactful documentary film illustrating the power of music! Plus, we will once again hold a family art fair to encourage young minds to create art at the Polish Museum of America. No doubt it will be an unforgettable festival.
We hope that we can count again on your support to help us create opportunities that inspire and connect diverse, innovative, world-class, artists and musicians through collaborative concerts, festivals, workshops, and educational programs. Your support is crucial to our efforts.
Let’s make this year’s “Chopin IN the City” festival the best one ever! Here’s to creating amazing musical experiences together.
