The Chopin Society of Houston

The Chopin Society of Houston

A non-profit organization, was established at the beginning of the year 2000, after a very successful Chopin Youth Competition, organized to honor the 150th anniversary of Chopin's death. As UNESCO proclaimed 1999 year of Chopin, around 20 of Houston's piano teachers filled their studios with the unsurpassed beauty of Chopin's music, teaching and preparing ninety students for the anniversary performances. Two honorable judges (Nina Drath from Corpus Christi and Piotr Kusiewicz from Poland) chose ten winners. The level of playing was outstanding, and the final gala concert was a great success! Our organizing committee, consisting of musicians and music lovers, decided that our work cannot end with that success, but should continue as long as there is need for Chopin's music in the Houston community and the means to support such an idea.

President: Ms. Anna Golka.
