On this occasion and also to celebrate the 60th anniversary, on the 5th of May, The Gedung Kesenian in Central Jakarta witnessed a Chopin Gala Concert played by one of the most talented young Polish pianists – Andrzej Wierciński.



More than 400 classical music connoisseurs and diplomats attended the concert and Indonesian Minister of Maritime Affairs and Fishery Susi Pudjiastuti was one of them.

School vacations are coming up very soon. Families are preparing for departures back home and because of that, we would like you to feel more relaxed as well. To make it happen, we decided to organize our next – the 22nd – gathering in a different format. We will upgrade the venue but will keep it at a very, very casual level.
