The third concert of the Friends of Music will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday at the Cyr Center in Stamford.
The Karkowska Sisters Duo, Anna on violin and Katarzyna, known as Kasha, on piano, was connected to Friend of Music by someone who presented the sisters a Friends of Music card after a concert on Long Island last year.
The internationally acclaimed, award-winning duo has toured North America and Europe and has recorded for Polish National, Mexican and U.S. television and radio including PBS in Buffalo. Anna violin earned her Master of Music degree from the Juilliard School, while Kasha earned her master’s degree from the Chopin Academy of Music in Warsaw, Poland.
The Karkowska Sisters have performed in many prestigious venues including Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center in New York City, the Gusman Center for Performing Arts in Miami, the National Grand Theater in Warsaw, Poland, and the National Center for the Arts in Mexico City.
Refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the concert. Parking is available at the Cyr Center, which is also handicapped-accessible. Suggested donation is $12 per person, and $6 for seniors and students. There is no charge for those younger than 13.
