Kosciuszko Birthday Celebration at the Kosciuszko Foundation in New York City

Tadeusz Kosciuszko (1746 – 1817) is one of the most important figures of the modern world, and a national hero in Poland and the United States. He was a Polish general, military engineer, and freedom fighter who fought in the American Revolutionary War and led a valiant but ultimately unsuccessful uprising against Poland’s partition by Russia and other foreign powers. A lifelong champion of the common man and woman, he was ahead of his time in advocating tolerance and standing up for the rights of slaves, Native Americans, women, serfs, and Jews.

About the performers: Duo Karolina Mikolajczyk & Iwo Jedynecki is one of the most vibrant and innovative chamber ensembles of the young generation. Winners of Grand Prix and First Prizes at international music competitions (France, Italy, Austria, Croatia, Poland). They performed at Carnegie Hall, Guangzhou Opera House and Warsaw Philharmonic and other notable music venues in France, Germany, Swietzerland, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Georgia, Cuba, and other countries.
