Yesterday afternoon the Polish Consulate in Toronto hosted a glamorous Gala Concert to commemorate Polish Independence Day and Canada’s Remembrance Day (both of which occur on November 11th)
The concert, which took place downtown, Toronto in the Churchill Salon of the Delta Chelsea Hotel was performed by the Toronto Sinfonietta Orchestra and conducted by Music Director Matthew Jaskiewicz.
Over 300 special guests watched as featured performers Clarinetist Kornel Wolak, Violinist Ewa Sas and Pianist Jacqueline Mokrzewski dazzled the audience with their breathtaking musical talents.
YouNxt was delighted to be involved as Filip Terlecki (YouNxt Director) acted as Master of Ceremonies.
