In honor and recognition of Polish American Heritage Month, this month’s Empower Hour will feature BACP Commissioner Ken Meyer chatting with Zygmunt and Lela Dyrkacz, Co-Owners of Chopin Theatre. Chopin Theatre Productions is housed in the historic Chopin Theatre building, across the Polish Triangle where Division St., Milwaukee Ave., and Ashland Ave. intersect. Their mission is to promote enlightened civic discourse through a diverse range of artistic offerings. Over the past 3 decades Chopin Theatre has presented over 2,000 different events including theater; jazz and classical music, literary and other arts including over 120 Polish and Eastern European events. The theater has hosted performers from each American state and from over 40 countries. Also, Chopin Theatre was instrumental in transforming Wicker Park into a destination neighborhood with quality dining and entertainment options, through their award-winning acts which brought over 1 million people to Wicker Park. They have greatly helped to support local restaurants, boutiques, bars, etc.
The candid conversation will cover the start of the venue, operations, community partnerships networking, and utilizing business resources. The webinar will end with a Q&A for attendees to ask questions.
