“We are thrilled that this internationally acclaimed orchestra has agreed to make Fort Myers the first stop on its U.S. tour, especially since this is the first time the orchestra has toured the U.S. since 2012,” said Fort Myers Community Concert Association President Mary Lee Mann.
NFM Wroclaw Philharmonic Music Director Giancarlo Guerrero will conduct the orchestra. Guerrero is a six-time Grammy Award-winning conductor, Music Director of the Nashville Symphony and Principal Guest Conductor of the Gulbenkian Orchestra in Lisbon.

Johannes Brahms, a composer with close ties to Wrocław will also be represented on tour along with other Central European composers Antonin Dvořák and Béla Bartók.
