Dear ladies and gentlemen,

I am very pleased, that I can set the cornerstone for the International Fryderyk Chopin Music Academy here in Lahr, after many years of pedagogical work at the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw/Bialystock.

My target is to support and care for people, who enjoy and love the art of music. Furthermore,
I consider it my mission to unlock the door to classical music for young  people and interested persons and to inspire them, especially for the music of Fryderyk Chopin. Additionally, the Academy supports talented pianists with concert opportunities at home and abroad.
Apart from delivering master classes and workshops, we also prepare pianists for competitions. Our approach is multidisciplinary, and our Academy considers itself
also a school with a variety of instruments. A good cooperation with the music schools at the Oberrhein is exceedingly important to me.

I take pride in saying, that we have already got five scholarships for the first
master class for piano in February 2016. Many thanks to the supporters for their
contribution. I will pass on these scholarships in January to the
schools of music in Lahr and Offenburg.

I am very pleased to see that my engagement contributes to Lahr that is continuing to become
a centre of  music and culture at the Oberrhein.

Best wishes
Dr. hab. Bozena Maria Maciejowska
