Ad Hymnos Ad Cantus, the 28th Festival of Traditional Polish Music in the Historical Buildings of Warsaw, will be held Sept. 15-Oct. 11.

Next year marks 200 years since Polish composer Frederic Chopin was born and so during the festival, the Warsaw Chamber Opera, which is the organizer, will perform works by Chopin's teachers Karol Kurpiński and Józef Elsner. The two helped introduce 20-year-old Chopin to wider audiences.

The festival will also deal with the history of Polish music including the 19th century when Poland was partitioned between Russia, Austria and Prussia, a period that was particularly difficult to Polish culture. The opening festival concert is devoted to Polish music in the 17th and 18th centuries, and the closing concert will feature works from the 16th and 17th centuries.

The festival venues include the Royal Castle and the Palace in Wilanów. For a detailed program and ticket prices go to the Warsaw Chamber Opera website at www.operakameralna.pl
