November 2018

Marek completed his successful 2-week tour in Japan!

The highlights of the tour were: his recital at the Yamaha Hall in Tokyo, a performance with the Tsunami Cello in Minamisanriku, Miyagi, his visit to Soma Children’s Orchestra in Fukushima, meeting with children in an El Sistema Japan string class in Komagane, Nagano, a featured performance at the Tsuruga International Culture Festival in Fukui as well as at the Polish Festival in Tokyo.

Marek was thrilled to see familiar faces and develop new friendships. He is deeply grateful to those who have supported his endeavors in various forms both in Japan and in the U.S.
