Michèle Bogdanowicz is a guest artist in “A Musical Invasion of Paris: The Mighty 4”, with Off Centre Music Salon.  In the words of Audrey Hepburn: “Paris is always a good idea.” Our unlikely, but “mighty” four – Chopin, Wagner, Rossini and Meyerbeer – certainly thought so. The programme will include Chopin’s twelve op. 28 Preludes, a piano four-hand arrangement of Wagner’s Tannhäuser Ouverture as well as beloved scenes from Rossini and Meyerbeer operas
