Founded in 1944, the Polish Wieniawski Philharmonic gave the first symphony concert in postwar Poland and has since become the largest music institution in eastern Poland.

"With a repertoire of performances in Italy, Switzerland, Spain, Sweden, Germany, South Korea, Denmark, and Ukraine, we are so very honored to have the Polish Wieniawski Philharmonic come to South Florida as part of its first tour in the United States," said Eric Fliss, Managing Director of the South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center.

"There is no greater satisfaction than to bring such internationally acclaimed artists to our stage. It is a reflection of the true passion South Floridians have for world-class music," he added.

The orchestra is joined by violinist Sara Dragan, winner of the Henryk Wieniawski International Violin Competition (pictured above); and by piano soloist Tomasz Ritter, winner of the Chopin International Piano Competition.

The Polish Wieniawski Philharmonic has attracted a glittering list of prominent conductors and a huge repertoire. The orchestra encompasses compositions from Baroque to contemporary music.
