The Slavic Arts Ensemble was founded in 1977 by Mieczyslaw Gubernat with the intent of presenting an important forum for performances by outstanding young musicians. The great success of the "Birthday Concert Series" at the Kosciusko Foundation in New York City, which featured the music of Polish composers prompted the Slavic Arts Ensemble to expand its repertoire to encompass all musical eras and styles, including music written expressly for the Slavic Arts Ensemble by contemporary composers. The New York Times enthusiastically praised The Slavic Arts Ensemble for giving "Superlative performances of chamber music." Comprised of distinuished musicians, The Slavic Arts Ensemble brings to its performances an enormous range of collective experience and talent in the classic European style of elegance and refinement.
