A casual visit to SAM'S CLUB in Charlottesville resulted in meeting BLANKA ROSENSTIEL-The Founder of POLISH INSTITUTE OF CULTURE AND THE CHOPIN FOUNDATION OF THE US.
The rest is history. Over the last twelve years, Cindy and I had the privilege to host some amazing artists: MEI-TING SUN-PIANO (TWICE), JACEK KORTUS -PIANO(TWICE), PIOTR ROZANSKI-PIANO, JULIA KOCIUBAN-PIANO, MAESTRO MARIUSZ PATYRA-VIOLIN, ARTUR DUTKIEWICZ-PIANO (JAZZ), NING AN-PIANO, RIA CARLO-PIANO, INGOLF WUNDER-PIANO, MAGDALENA BACZEWSKA-PIANO , EDWARD KUNZ-PIANO, CLAIRE HUANGCI ,Eric Lu and Anna Miernik (3/17/2017).
Our vision is to bring young world class artists to rural Orange County, VA and to promote Chopin's music. The beauty of the area-" A SQUIRELL'S JUMP FROMHEAVEN"- (President James Madison ), award winning wines from Barboursville Vineyard, and most importantly magnificent music of Fryderyk Chopin make an evening to remember. The venue can only accommodate up to 100 people. The intimate closness to an artist, great sounding Yamaha concert hall piano, black-tie dressed gentlemen and fancy gowns worn by the ladies only further enhance our Chopin in Virginia experience. We think this is how Chopin intended his music to be listened to. Small , salon like venue with an opportunity to exchange feelings and emotions with an artist after the concert....
We are proud to announce that we have joined the family of Chopin organizations becoming Chopin Council of Virginia, a part of Chopin Foundation of the US-one of the finest and most respected Chopin societies in the World.
Come and experience the uniqueness of Chopin in Virginia by yourself and to promote young US pianists since all the proceeds benefit Chopin Foundation of the US in Miami, FL.
We will see you all soon! Do zobaczenia!
Robert and Cindy Joskowiak
