The Slavic Arts Ensemble was founded in 1977 by Mieczyslaw Gubernat with the intent of presenting young Polish and Slavic compositions and providing an important forum for performances by outstanding young musicians. The great success of the 'Birthday Concert Series' at the Kosciuszko Foundation in New York City, which featured the music of Polish composers prompted the Slavic Arts Ensemble to expand it's 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 distinguished musicians, the Slavic Arts Ensemble brings to it's performances an enormous range of collective experience and talent in the classical European style of elegance and refinement. Some of the artists that have performed with the Ensemble include: Teresa Kubiak, Christina Petrowska, Hanna Lachert, Jan Jozef Wnek, Krzysztof Witek, Pawel Knapik, Krzysztof Kuznik, Maurycy Banaszek, Mateusz Wolski and others.
