Episode #2206: Musical Diplomacy
This week Dennis Wholey celebrates the 25th anniversary of The Embassy Series. During a visit to an Embassy Series concert at the home of Polish Ambassador Piotr Wilczek, Dennis Wholey learns about The Embassy Series’ mission of “Musical Diplomacy” and the history of the organization’s effort to host concerts with an array of unique international performers at diplomatic locations for the past 25 years. Interviews include Polish Ambassador Piotr Wilczek, Director and Co-Founder of The Embassy Series, Jerome Barry and renowned pianist Thomas Pandolfi. The program is a wonderful chance to see and hear music in a new way and to explore music as not only a form of personal expression but as cultural communication and a diplomatic tool that can thrill and unite people from all backgrounds.
