To the editor:
I would like to thank the White Mountain Arts Committee for hosting the fabulous Chopin concert by Marjan Kiepura at First Church of Christ Congregational on March 6. Marjan Kiepura is a world-famous pianist who graced our valley with his talent, inspiration and knowledge about the life of Fredieric Chopin last Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m. He played Preludes, Mazurkas, Polonaise and Waltzes to illustrate the passion of one of the greatest composers of music literature, who has ever lived. Jane Knox Kiepura, his wife, introduced the program with background information about Chopin's life and love of his homeland, Poland. Marjan Kiepura is the son of two world-class opera singers; Jan Kiepura and Marta Eggerth. Marjan's expert mastery for playing the Chopin selections and his enchanting discussion about the composer's life and inspiration were a rare gift to the citizens of North Conway and environs. Let us hope that by encouraging concerts of this caliber within our community, the appreciation and possibility of first-class entertainment and education will grow and improve the lives of our towns folk as well as vistors to this area.
Thank you.
