Witness the excitement of 153rd Opening Night of the legendary Worcester Music Festival featuring the Warsaw Philharmonic. For over 100 years, the Warsaw Philharmonic has been one of Poland's most distinguished musical institutions. Led by Maestro Antoni Wit, the Philharmonic will be joined by 25-year-old piano soloist Yulianna Avdeeva. Avdeeva is the 2010 First Prize winner of Warsaw’s 16th International Frederic Chopin Competition. She is the first woman to win this competition in 45 years!
