Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits Chopin for All FREE Concert Series

The Chopin Foundation began presenting the Chopin for All Concerts in 1996 as a way to make high quality classical music, and especially the music of Chopin, accessible to the entire South Florida Community. It is also the Foundation’s way of supporting the many talented young American pianists that are featured at these concerts. The pianists are chosen in a variety of ways such as having distinguishing themselves in their communities, or through the Music Teachers National Association’s piano competitions. Many have benefited from the Chopin Foundation’s Scholarship Program for Young American Pianists. Occasionally, the concerts feature a young exchange artist from Poland, Kosovo or other countries where we’ve established partnerships.

These events have become very popular and always include some of Chopin’s music in the program. Seats are available on a first come, first served basis and do fill up quickly – especially at the Broward Main Library on Saturdays. Plan to arrive early!

Click on the links below for more information about the artists and their programs.

All concerts are presented in two locations:
Saturdays at 3 PM at Broward County Main Library
100 S. Andrews Ave, Fort Lauderdale     MAP IT!

Sundays at 3 PM at Granada Presbyterian Church
950 University Drive, Coral Gables
