Over the last several years AMF has focused on collaboration with Chicago’s Polish community, working closely with Chicago Chopin Society and its founder, composer Jaroslaw Golembiowski.  Their partnership has included performances by the Lincolnwood Chamber Orchestra on the Taste of Polonia Festival (Family Concert, Poland’s Great Composers, and Kosciuszko Memorial) and two Christmas Spectaculars at the Copernicus Center.   The organizations partnered on the 2017-18 International Cultural Exchange Festival in Chicago, a four-concert series showcasing the influence of Polish music on other cultures.  In September of 2018 AMF worked with the Chopin Society and Save St. Adalbert Church for a fundraising concert, celebrating 100 years of Polish independence.
