Flucello, (L-R) Antonina Styczen and Pola Benke – March 3

–Sunday, March 3, 1 p.m.

Live! at the Museum, Flucello with Antonina Styczen and Pola Benke

Flutist Antonina Styczen comes from the small town of Bielsko-Biala in Southern Poland, and at the age of 5, set her mind on having a career as a flutist. By age 6, she had enrolled in a local flute class, and since then has had experimental performance art rarely seen in glamorous concert halls.

Pola Benke, an esteemed cellist hailing from Poland, commenced her musical journey with the cello at the tender age of 8. She debuted as a soloist with the University Orchestra in 2007, rendering a

captivating performance of “Grave” by Lutoslawski. Her quest for musical excellence led her to earn a master’s degree in orchestral training from The Boston Conservatory, and later, to pursue postgraduate studies under the tutelage of the acclaimed Marek Szpakiewicz in Los Angeles.

The concert is performed at the Laguna Art Museum, 307 Cliff Drive, Laguna Beach.

Cost: Free for members, $14 for non-members. Email ava@lagunabeachlive.org for reservations.
