all events

For this year’s Paderewski Lecture-Recital, the Polish Music Center presents the 3 Paderewskis, a new one-act opera created by playwright Oliver Mayer and composer Jenni Brandon, and directed by David Bridel.

The event is a collaboration between the USC Thornton School of Music, the Polish Music Center at USC, and faculty from the USC School of Dramatic Arts.

Conceived of as part of the Adam Mickiewicz Institute’s Paderewski Musical Project in 2017, 3 Paderewskis celebrates the legacy of Ignacy Jan Paderewski as not only one of the world’s most famous turn-of-the-century musicians and a great patriot who was instrumental in returning Poland to the map after WWI, but also a husband, wine maker and lover of life.
