Hear sublime and compelling works when Friday Night Live! at the Detroit Institute of Arts presents The Warsaw Concerto. The performance is Friday, Nov. 1, beginning at 7 p.m. at the DIA. Performance is free with paid admission.
Conceived by pianist Joseph Palazzolo to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising through music, the Warsaw Concerto brings little-known harrowing stories of brave people who chose to rise up and reclaim their freedom.
A scripted show, the concert features the music of Chopin, Paderewski, Saint-Saens, and the ever-popular Warsaw Concerto. Also included are Polkas, Klezmer, and music of the period performed by Palazzolo and violinist Sonia Lee.
