The University of Southern California in Los Angeles will host two concerts in early October, celebrating the centenary of Sir Andrzej Panufnik. On October 5, the Polish Music Center will present its annual Paderewski Lecture-Recital, featuring the composer’s widow, Lady Camilla Panufnik, delivering the lecture, “Andrzej Panufnik—the Man behind the Music.”

Following her presentation, several of Panufnik’s chamber works will be presented at the Alfred Newman Recital Hall. The program will include the Piano Trio, Five Vocalises - Hommage à Chopin, and String Quartet No. 2, performed by some of Los Angeles' favorite musicians:
