Lira is the nation’s only professional performing arts company specializing in Polish music, song and dance.
Cuerdas Clasicas String Ensemble, which is highly praised and loved for singing and playing traditional Mexican stringed instruments that are central to Mexican indigenous folk culture, was founded by and is led by Rodolfo Hernandez.
The Lira Ensemble of Chicago was founded by Lucyna Migala who serves as artistic director and general manager. She will narrate all three concerts in English. Lira is known internationally for its superb artistic level and its dedication to Polish authenticity.
