Peace Interlude: A New World and an Old Fashioned

Peace Center Campus

Home to notable musicians Frederic Chopin and Arthur Rubinstein, Poland has a long and diverse musical heritage. The history and artistic culture of Poland is uniquely characterized by its geographical location and the interweaving of outside Germanic, Latinate, and Byzantine influences with the cultures of smaller regional groups. Based in the city of Wroclaw – hailed as the 2016 European Capital of Culture – the NFM Wroclaw Philharmonic is at the heart of the Polish music scene. Discover this distinctive country, their prolific musical tradition, their esteemed classical ensemble, and a classic Polish cocktail at this Interlude. 

Did you know?
Poland is the 9th largest country in Europe and features mountain ranges, almost 500 miles of seacoast, and the only Central-European desert. Contributing to a diverse cultural heritage, Polish history is rather complicated, fraught with battles and invasions–it even disappeared from world maps for a period of time in the 1700s.

Featured Beverage: Szarlotka (Polish Apple Pie Cocktail)
Featured Performance: NFM Wroclaw Philharmonic
