Jamesport Meeting House
Internationally-recognized, Polish-American pianist Magdalena Baczewska returns to
the Jamesport Meeting House at 7:30, Saturday evening, April 28, for a solo performance of
music by Polish and French composers, including Debussy, Ravel, Paderewski and Chopin.
Tickets are $20 in advance at jamesportmeetinghouse.org or by telephone at
631-722-0008. Tickets at the door the night of the performance will be $25.
Born in Katowice, Poland, of musical parents, Ms. Baczeweska has played for audiences
throughout Europe, Asia and the United States at such venues as Salle Cortot in Paris, the
National Center for Performing Arts in Beijing, China’s Guangzhou Opera House, Carnegie Hall in New York City and San Francisco’s Davies Symphony Hall.
Her performances have been described in the Washington Post as “eloquently and
technically flawless” and praised in The Polish Daily News for “high musicianship and refined
musical taste.” Aura Cultural Magazine remarked on her ability to “create a mysterious ritual on stage.”
“We are indeed privileged to welcome back an artist of enormous talent and an
enthusiastic following,” said Richard Wines, president of the Jamesport Meeting House
Preservations Trust. “Reactions from our sold-out audience at her first visit in March of 2016
were nothing short of superlative. This is a concert not to be missed, all the more so for the rich acoustics in our main performance room.”
In addition to concert work, Ms. Baczewska, who holds a doctorate from the Manhattan
School of Music, is on the faculty of Columbia University, where she is director of the school’s
Music Performance Program and a lecturer in music. This gives her a special link to the
Jamesport Meeting House because a fellow lecturer in music at Columbia, Dr. Peter Susser, an accomplished composer whose work has been performed by Ms. Baczewska, is also a long-time member of the board of directors of the Jamesport Meeting House Preservation Trust. He resides in South Jamesport and Manhattan.
