Your are cordially invited to A Celebration of Ignacy Jan Paderewski
Paderewski made his first appearance in Chicago in 1892, exactly 130 years ago. He returned frequently, performing his Piano Concerto in A minor to open the concert series at the World’s Columbian Exposition in May 1893, and making numerous appearances with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
This exclusive event, held in the landmark Glessner House, will include a reception and remarks by Glessner House curator William Tyre, who will speak about the relationship between Paderewski, Theodore Thomas, and the Glessners. The centerpiece of the event is a concert of Paderewski’s works performed on the Glessners’ 1887 Steinway piano, which Paderewski played during his visits to the house.
The concert will be offered in two seatings at 5:00 and 6:00pm and will last approximately 45 minutes. Seating is strictly limited.
Sponsorship opportunities, with preferred seating, are available.
