The concert is part of an international tour of the Polish Chamber Musicians’ Association entitled “Music of Polish-Jewish Composers,” visiting Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Paso Robles, and New York from October until December 2021. Performers appearing in Seattle are Magdalena Molendowska (soprano) and Julia Samojło (piano).

The concert features the highly acclaimed Polish Chamber Musicians’ Association performing the works of four Polish-Jewish composers with fascinating histories: Roman Ryterband, Mieczysław Weinberg, Simon Laks and Ignaz Friedman.

The purpose of the concerts is to familiarize American audiences with previously uncelebrated artists from Poland’s Polish-Jewish musical legacy, presented by Polish musicians. The concert is organized by the Honorary Consul of the Republic of Poland in Seattle and the Polish Home Association in partnership with the Consulate General of Poland in Los Angeles.
