On Saturday, August 20 I had the opportunity to visit an area of Poland I had never been in - the southwestern portion very near the Czech border.  We took a train from Warsaw to Opole and then were picked up and driven farther south to a beautiful estate owned by the Biernacki family.  In the past 10 years they have painstakingly renovated a palace that was ruined, created a museum of science and technology displaying Mr. Biernacki's inventions (and classic cars) - , and created and built up a winery.  But in addition, their most recent project was to renovate a large stable into an art gallery/concert hall.  I had the great honor to perform the inaugural concert there, and it was a true delight...wonderful people of all ages, beautiful landscape, great wine, and the chance to share my music. Thank you Pan and Pani Beirnacki for your generosity and vision. I have left a part of my heart in Silesia!  Please enjoy the photo gallery below which capture this remarkable Saturday - rehearsal, wine- tasting for guests (not for me before the concert!), quick trip over the Czech border and to a Spa in Poland, and then the concert.
