Pamela Howland tells of her outdoor performance in Poland.
Pianist Pamela Howland has a deeply personal connection to Poland, the land of Frederick Chopin. Her grandfather emigrated from Poland as a little boy. Several years ago, Pam and her family returned to Poland to find her grandfather’s birthplace. They found the location in Żyrardów, a small town near that of her musical hero’s Chopin, who was born in Żelazowa Wola, 29 miles west of Warsaw.
