Please join me in an evening of classical music, at the Scarboro United Church in Calgary. Let's use the joy of music to inspire and unite our thoughts and prayers in support of healing! On the program, there will be solo piano performances of Liszt and Chopin, as well as chamber music of Schubert, Wieniawski & Massenet. I will be joined by special guests: Zuzana Simurdova on piano, Tatiana Warszynski on violin, and Alicja Warszynski on violin!
I am dedicating this concert to my dear aunt Iwona, who is battling leukemia, and all those who are suffering from this severe illness. All proceeds from this event will go towards leukemia research & clinical trials to cure leukemia at both the Tom Baker Cancer Centre in Calgary and the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton.
This concert entitled 'Lisztomania' will take place at the Scarboro United Church in Calgary (134 Scarboro Ave SW) on Sunday April 30th, at 5pm.
