“I would like to be remembered as a good human being, someone who brought a little happiness, hope and reflection into life and into the world…” —Wojciech Kilar
Legendary Polish composer Wojciech Kilar’s work has been enjoyed by popular audiences – he composed scores for over 130 films, including The Pianist and Bram Stoker’s Dracula – but symphonic music was his first love. Join us at the magnificent St. Hyacinth Basilica for Kilar’s Mass for Peace, performed in 2001 at the Vatican for Pope John Paul II.
