Celebrating Chopin

Chopin would have been 200 years old this past weekend!


One of our good friends, Don Shabkie, thought that it would be an excellent idea to have a concert and celebration for Chopin's 200th birthday. Don is the head of Wedding Music of the Upstate. Since we think Don is super talented, and work with him very frequently whenever we have a couple that wants live performances during their wedding, we took the challenge of helping create a celebration for the late composer.
The program certainly brought culture to the Upstate. Six visual artists were featured, two pianists and a cellist performed, and the Greenville Ballet danced. It was truly an amazing experience.
Holly Cakes provided a BEAUTIFUL cake to celebrate Chopin's 200th birthday.

One of the stunning paintings, by Paul Flint, titled "Waxing up Chopin"


The Greenville Ballet, waiting patiently for their cue at the Westin's mezzanine. Aren't they beautiful? (We made sure they had cake waiting for them in their dressing room since they performed right before intermission. They were so grateful. What a lovely group.)


Where the magic happened.

B & R Events was so pleased to be a part of this event. We were happy to come up with all the marketing and design concepts, keep the performers on cue, and find a wonderful cake baker. We hope that we can partner with Don again and participate with another cultural event...
