On 3 March 2019, the LA Museum of the Holocaust will present a rare Los Angeles performance by Polish-Canadian pianist Daniel Wnukowski, who will perform an all-Polish program of Mazurkas. The program will include works by Chopin as well as lesser-known Polish-Jewish composers who survived the Holocaust.
Daniel Wnukowski has performed throughout Europe, North America, South America and Asia in prestigious concert halls.
