A Journey to Mexico…in Poland
In May 2016 I was part of a multi-disciplinary project that brought artists together from Mexico, Canada and Poland to present a program called “Journey to Mexico”. This was a project inspired by poet Iwona Zelazawska’s experience during her travels to Mexico. In collaboration with cellist Dobrochna Zubek and pianist Piotr Banasik, we performed works by Mexican composers Lucia Álvarez, Juan Trigos and Max Lifchitz. Our performances took place in the Silesian Library in Katowice and at the Silesian Opera in Bytom, Poland. I returned to Poland in February and March of 2017 for the next stage of this project. We presented this concert, along with a second program of Canadian and Polish repertoire that included two world premieres.
