Concert "Radiochemist plays Chopin"
Monday - 12th May 2014 from 8.00 p.m. to 9.30 p.m.

For "us" Marianske Lazne means radiochemistry. For the majority, Marianske Lazne mean spa and Chopin, the latter meaning backed strongly by the well-known Fryderyk Chopin Festival. By this concert, we would like to link this tradition with the successful concert "Chemists in Music - Musicians in Chemistry" organised during the previous conference.
