Dr. Thomas Witakowski is one of the area’s most visible and entertaining vocal performers in recital and opera, having appeared with the Greater Buffalo Opera Company, Opera Sacra, and the Buffalo Opera Unlimited. He has directed the Chopin Singing Society for the past fourteen years, leading them on concert tours to Palm Beach and Boston, as well as a full calendar of various presentations throughout the year. His beautiful conception of the “Jaselka” tradition has earned him great acclaim and made it a staple of the Chopin repertoire. He was recently honored by the Polish American Congress for his contributions to Polish cultural life in Western New York. Dr. Witakowski recently taught at the University of Warsaw, where he continued his research and study of Polish music.
