The late great Ignacy Paderewski stands proudly in Downtown City Park, a place where he once strolled on temperate Paso Robles evenings. Donning a tailored suit, sharply-groomed facial hair and a pensive expression, the man immortalized in gleaming bronze represents more than a glittering piece of Paso’s past. The Eighth Annual 2013 Paderewski Festival will again celebrate the word-renowned composer’s continued influence within the region and the world.
Often touted as Paso Robles’ most famous resident, the Polish-born statesman, orator, humanitarian, Zinfandel pioneer and fervent youth music advocate will come alive over four days of concerts and special events featuring internationally renowned performers, young Central Coast pianists, master classics, historic exhibits, lectures and wine tasting. The festivities unfold Thursday, Nov. 7–11 throughout North County.For the complete article see the 11-01-2013 issue.
