Honorary Consul of Poland John Petkus selects Springs Preserve as venue for first-ever consular concert event in Las Vegas: “Chopin on the Rocks”
One of the newest confirmed honorary consuls in Las Vegas has stepped up to the occasion in a big way. John Petkus was confirmed as Honorary Consul of Poland in Las Vegas just last year, and on October 2nd will host “Chopin on the Rocks” at the Springs Preserve outdoor amphitheater in Las Vegas.
A unique concert event featuring popular, jazz and classical stylings of polish stars of the music scene, Chopin on the Rocks marks the first time any consulate has produced a musical event in Las Vegas.
“This will not be a typical or ‘boring’ classical concert.” Consul Petkus says. “We have three fantastic acts, and we will be doing a contemporary ‘twist’.”
The bulk of the proceeds will go toward the Las Vegas Polish School and the Las Vegas Youth Orchestra, which, along with Pianist David Kowaleski, will provide pre-concert entertainment.
General Admission is $40. Members of the Consular Chamber are invited to join us at VIP seating by booking your seats with the Consulate directly by telephone at 702-368-7974. VIP seats are $50. each. Doors open at 5:30. The Concert begins at 7:00.
