Polish Wienlawski Philharmonic Orchestra to Perform in Fort Myers
"The Polish Wienlawski Philharmonic Orchestra is including Fort Myers on its first ever U.S. tour," said Fort Myers Community Concert Association President Mary Lee Mann. "The orchestra has a reputation as one of the best orchestras in Europe. We are so very happy to have them here to perform for us."
The Polish Wieniawski Philharmonic Symphony will perform Brahms' Variations on a Theme of Haydn, Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 2 and Schubert's Symphony No. 9, "The Great Symphony."
The Polish Wienlawski Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in 1944 with numerous chamber and solo concerts given by musicians who after World War II established ties within Poland. Today, the orchestra has delivered concerts throughout Europe performing a huge repertoire of compositions from Baroque to contemporary music.
Tickets are $55 for orchestra seats, $35 for lower balcony seats and $25 for upper balcony seats. Mezzanine seats are sold out. The one night only performance starts at 7:30 p.m. The Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall is located on the Florida SouthWestern State College campus in Fort Myers. For tickets, call the Barbara B. Mann Hall box office at 239-481-4849 or visit www.bbmannpah.com
