Chopin Concerts – Twin Cities Polish Festival

The Twin Cities Polish Festival is very appreciative of our festival sponsors and a special appreciation goes out to Kieran Wells of Wells Pianos (St. Paul) who is organizing the event and Bonnie & William Frels who are sponsoring the Chopin Celebration Concert at the festival this year. The musicians from past festivals and the upcoming one are a combination of gifted, talented artists who deliver incredible musical performances for your listening pleasure.

The Chopin concerts will begin at 1:00 pm each day at the St. Anthony Main Theatre and last approximately 90 minutes.

Many, many thanks go to Kieran for providing the festival with the ability to present Chopin and other Polish composers, rendering these compositions at their finest, by incredible talented performers.
