22 years of the Paderewski Symphony Orchestra

Songs of Freedom – Przeboje Niepodległej!
October 21, 2018, 3:00 pm Orchestra Hall at Symphony Center, Chicago

This unique musical event will trace the centennial history
of Independent Poland through her most beloved songs:

Part I: Ballads and songs of the Polish Legions, Cavalry and Insurgents, which are filled with optimism and hope, yet also sound wistful and nostalgic as well as music of the post-war era, including patriotic and protest songs, such as Strange Is This World (Dziwny jest ten swiat) or Miejscie Nadzieje.

Part II: A chronicle of crowd-pleasing Polish music spann
ing several generations, from the tangos of the 1930s, songs from popular movies, dance tunes of the ‘60s, rock hits of the ‘70s and ‘80s, all the way to contemporary and timeless compositions, including Long Live the Ball (Niech zyje bal) and You Will Return (Powrocisz tu).

Screen projections will provide the relevant historical context.

Tre Voci – tenors: Mikolaj Adamczak, Milosz Gałaj and Voytek Soko (Poland), Miroslawa Sojka Topór - soprano, pop vocalists: Mariola

TRE VOCI - Mikolaj Adamczak, Milosz Galaj and Voytek Soko,
are artists of a new generation, filled with love for people and the world whose music transcends all geographical, cultural and political borders. Three different personalities and voices, united by one tremendous friendship. This incredible musical mixture has resulted in the formation of a charismatic explosive cocktail, best experienced during live performances. In their concerts they combine a wide range of musical styles. Their unique, perfectly-tuned voices, their power of expression and vocal craftsmanship make them as moving as they are amusing.
