Quarter's Review

Spring is finally here! The last quarter of 2014 was extremely productive to our Foundation and Center, as we brought a number of well-known and respected artists such as Maryla Rodowicz, Chris Norman, DeFranco and Anna Maria Jopek to our theater.

On November 25th, we proudly hosted President  Barack Obama who came to his hometown to talk about his immigration reform. The President’s speech brought hundreds of people from various community groups to our center and we are extremely happy that we were chosen to host the President of the United States.

Wielka Majówka - Mega Koncert Gwiazd

Publiczność chicagowska będzie świadkiem niezwykłego koncertu, podczas którego usłyszy kilka utworów Budki Suflera oraz największe przeboje zespołu Bracia,Krzysztof Cugowski to najbardziej znany polski wokalista rockowy, który w 1969 roku założył zespół Budka Suflera. W ubiegłym roku Budka Suflera zakończyła swoją działalność po 40- u latach istnienia, zamykając ważny rozdział w historii polskiego rocka. Krzysztof Cugowski kontynuuje swoją muzyczną przygodę, koncertując ze swoimi synami Piotrem i Wojtkiem, którzy od 1997 roku tworzą zespół Bracia. 
Zespół BRACIA oceniany jest przez krytyków i publiczność jako najlepsza grupa rockowa w Polsce. Fanów Braci przybywa i także nie brakuje ich w Chicago. Kiedy Bracia trzy lata temu wystąpili w Copernicus Center w koncercie dedykowanym Czesławowi Niemenowi sala wypełniona była po brzegi. Tego niezwykłego, sentymentalnego koncertu nie wolno przegapić.

From the Director

Gregg - Director
It’s been quite some time since I last wrote something for a newsletter.    So many changes and ever increasing popularity of the Center really kept all of the staff running. Toward the end of the year our long time Event Coordinator Patricia Fuchs decided to leave us to further her educational career.   At the same time another young member of our staff decided to pursue opportunities outside Chicago.

It was a huge challenge to continue to keep things running smoothly while we sought to train new staff BUT...the remaining staff were up to the challenge.    I apologize that we were unable to keep all of you more informed through newsletters but it was "all hands on deck ".
