Happy 200th birthday, Frederic Chopin! The Polish-born French composer of moody piano ballades and fiery mazurkas would have celebrated 200 years this year, and as with all centennials, bicentennials and the like, there are plenty of folks around the world who leap at the chance to celebrate with a Chopin-fest.

Pianist Duane Hulbert.

First Lutheran Church in Tacoma is doing just that this weekend, thanks to Duane Hulbert. The Grammy-nominated concert pianist and University of Puget Sound professor, who’s a member of the church, will give an all-Chopin recital on a seven-foot Steinway grand this Sunday evening.

The concert is at 6 p.m. at First Lutheran, 524 s. I St., Tacoma. A silent auction will begin at 5 p.m.. Suggested donated $15. 253-272-1538, www.firstlutherantacoma.com
