I am very privileged to be part of the fundraising concert in Calgary. I would like to share the invitation from Dr. Mikolaj Warszynski, describing the event:
Please join me in an evening of classical music, at the Scarboro United Church in Calgary. Let us use the joy of music to inspire and unite our thoughts and prayers in support of spring, renewal and healing! On the program, there will be solo piano performances of Liszt and Chopin, as well as chamber music of Schubert, Wieniawski & Massenet. I will be joined by special guests: Zuzana Simurdova on piano, Tatiana Warszynski on violin, and Alicja Warszynski on violin!
We are dedicating this concert to all our loved ones who are battling leukemia, and suffering from this severe illness. All proceeds from this event will go towards leukemia research & clinical trials to cure leukemia at both the Tom Baker Cancer Centre in Calgary and the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton.
This concert entitled 'Lisztomania' will take place at the Scarboro United Church in Calgary (134 Scarboro Ave SW) on Sunday April 30th, at 5pm. In addition to the supporting role of the Alberta Cancer Foundation and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada, this event is sponsored by the Polish Canadian Association of Calgary & the Polish Canadian Humanitarian Society, in collaboration with Mazurka Music and Art Society in Edmonton.
Fundraising for this event is already open, and donations are expected at any time leading up to the concert date, as well as directly at the event! Proceeds raised at the event will be divided between the Alberta Cancer Foundation and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada. So far, we have received donations from the Polish Canadian Association of Calgary, the Polish Canadian Humanitarian Society, the Magda Tomczak Children’s Aid Foundation, and the Friends of the Catholic University of Poland Inc., Edmonton Branch.
