Hommage a Chopin

Today is what Chopin said and believed was his birthday, March 1st. Two hundred years later, audiences still love his music. You might have been lucky enough to hear Benedetto Lupo play his First Piano Concerto this last weekend with the San Antonio Symphony, or heard a gaggle of performers play his masterworks at McAllister Auditorium at San Antonio College last Tuesday.

Be sure to check out the celebrations is Warsaw today (starting at 1pm Central):
