Over at ClassicalMPR.com is the wonderful news that Stanislaw Skrowaczewski, Conductor Laureate of the Minnesota Orchestra, has been awarded Poland’s highest civilian honor, the Grand Cross of the Order of Reborn Poland, also known as the Order of Polonia Restituta, by Poland’s President Bronislaw Komorowski.

In an early October post, I reviewed Frederick Harris’ biography of Skrowaczewski.  After reading in this extensive biography about his early years in Poland, surviving WW2 in Poland as well as the Communist regime that followed, plus his deep involvement in Polish musical life during those times, I can only imagine what it might mean to Maestro Skrowaczewski to be honored for his contributions to and support of Polish culture.

Congratulations, Maestro!
