Warsaw Wind Quintet to take stage Saturday in PAAL concert series


January 16, 1995|By ROSALIE M. FALTER

On Saturday, the Performing Arts Association of Linthicum will present the next concert in its 1994-1995 season. The Warsaw Wind Quintet with Michiko Otaki, pianist, will perform on the stage of the new North County High School auditorium at 8 p.m.

The quintet was formed in Warsaw, Poland, in 1973 by major soloists from the National Philharmonic and Radio Orchestras. They have played in the former Soviet Union and throughout Europe. The quintet regularly records for the Polish RTV and West Berlin Radio. Wieslaw Grochowski, French horn; Krzysztof Malicki, flute; Zbigniew Pluzek, bassoon; Miroslaw Pokrzywinski, clarinet; and Tytus Wojnowicz, oboe, make up the quintet.

Ms. Otaki, a graduate of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Manhattan School of Music and the University of Miami, will join the group for the concert.

Jim Shipley's paintings also will be on exhibit. Mr. Shipley uses pine boards and acrylics on canvas. His work often has a Western theme.

Parking for the concert is free. The parking area is accessible to the handicapped and hearing-impaired.

PAAL's policy on inclement weather is that if the artist can get to the concert, the concert will be held. If a cancellation is necessary, the announcement will be made on these radio stations: WBAL, WBJC-91.5FM, and WJRO-1590AM.

It is not too late to buy a $20 subscription ticket for this concert and the season's three remaining concerts. The Charlie Byrd Trio will perform March 11, the Operatic Quartette performs April 8, and Dr. Ted Brown, who impersonates Chopin and Liszt, performs May 13.

For more information, call Jerry Van Airsdale at 636-2579 or Eloise Vaughan at 859-8047.
