NFM Wroclaw Philharmonic Orchestra – USA Tour 2020

I’ve just returned from a successful United States tour with the NFM Wroclaw Philharmonic Orchestra. We performed twelve concerts over a period of four weeks, starting in Florida (Ft. Myers, Gainesville, Daytona Beach, and West Palm Beach), continuing to Greenville S.C., Nashville TN, Carmel IN, Chicago IL, Wickenburg AZ, and finishing in California (Orange, Palo Alto and Rohnert Park).

We performed three different programs including, Brahms’ First Symphony, Dvorak’s Ninth Symphony, Lutoslawski’s Concerto for Orchestra and Symphonic Variations, and Szymanowski’s Concert Overture.

The chance to perform in Orchestra Hall at Symphony Center, in Chicago, was without a doubt the highlight of the tour! To our delight, the orchestra was well received at every venue were it performed, impressing critics and earning praise from audiences.

On a more personal level, it was also a great opportunity for me to see family and friends, as well as reconnect with fellow alumni and my professor, Mark Lawrence, from The Colburn School, who I hadn’t seen since my graduation, nine years ago.
