Free rental for all patrons.

The Copernicus Center for Polish Studies at UM presents a concert streamed from Warsaw featuring two of the finest innovative progressive musicians in Poland, which has become one of the most important centers of jazz in Europe.

This concert, which was created to illustrate the lecture by Maciej Lewenstein on “Free Improvisation and Jazz Avant-Garde in Poland: From Tomasz Stanko to Mikolaj Trzaska,” that will be broadcast on Thursday, February 18 at 12:00 PM.

Trzaska first performed in Ann Arbor in 2010 in duo with the magnificent trombonist Steve Swell at the Kerrytown Concert House, and returned there in 2013 as the leader of Shofar, a trio that reinvents traditional Jewish music though free improvisation.
