Jamesport Meeting House: Pianist Magdalena Baczeweska, April 28



World-Acclaimed, Polish-American Pianist In Concert


Saturday, April 28, 7:30 PM

Internationally-recognized, Polish-American pianist Magdalena Baczeweska returns to the Jamesport Meeting House at 7:30, Saturday evening, April 28, for a solo performance of music by Polish and French composers, including Debussy, Ravel, Paderewski and Chopin.

Tickets are $20 in advance at jamesportmeetinghouse.org or by telephone at 631-722-0008. Tickets at the door the night of the performance will be $25.

Born in Warsaw of musical parents, Ms. Baczeweska has played for audiences throughout Europe, Asia and the United States at such venues as Salle Cortot in Paris, the National Center for Performing Arts in Beijing, China’s Guangzhou Opera House, Carnegie Hall in New York City and San Francisco’s Davies Symphony Hall.

Her performances have been described in the Washington Post as “eloquently and technically flawless” and praised in The Polish Daily News for “high musicianship and refined musical taste.” Aura Cultural Magazine remarked on her ability to “create a mysterious ritual on stage.”

“We are indeed privileged to welcome back an artist of enormous talent and an enthusiastic following,” said Richard Wines, president of the Jamesport Meeting House Preservations Trust. “Reactions from our sold-out audience at her first visit in March of 2016 were nothing short of superlative. This is a concert not to be missed, all the more so for the rich acoustics in our main performance room.”

In addition to concert work, Ms. Baczewska, who holds a doctorate from the Manhattan School of Music, is on the faculty of Columbia University, where she is director of the school’s Music Performance Program and a lecturer in music. This gives her a special link to the Jamesport Meeting House because a fellow lecturer in music at Columbia, Dr. Peter Susser, an accomplished composer whose work has been performed by Ms. Baczewska, is also a long-time member of the board of directors of the Jamesport Meeting House Preservation Trust. He resides in South Jamesport and Manhattan.


Jamesport Meeting House, 1731

When two Congregational parishes merged, they declared a structure at Main Road and Manor Lane in Jamesport to be surplus and put it on the market. Fearing that a new owner might tear it down or turn it into a commercial venture, a group of local residents came together in 2008 and arranged financing to buy the building, starting a new life for a structure built by Puritan settlers in 1731.

Renamed the Jamesport Meeting House, the building, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, has evolved into a vital space for a broad range of events, including classical concerts, Broadway performances, bluegrass, folk music, Shakespeare, civic association meetings and lectures.
