From Poland, With Love 

Opole is hardly the most high-profile of Polish towns to most Europeans and Americans, but this medium-size city in the southwest part of the country is known to Poles as the capital of Polish song; the National Festival of Polish Songs has been held there every year since 1963. The attractive old town on the Oder River also boasts a first-class band: Opole, the Philharmonic of Poland, which was founded in 1947 and has been going strong ever since. After years of establishing its reputation as a high-quality orchestra throughout Europe, the Opole Philharmonic is undertaking its first coast-to-coast tour of the United States this winter, and St. Louis is lucky enough to be on the itinerary. Hear Opole, the Philharmonic of Poland as part of the St. Louis Cathedral Concerts series tonight at 8 p.m. at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis (4431 Lindell Boulevard; 314-533-7662 or Tickets are $22 to $42.
