Music is always a good way to improve one’s mood in difficult moments, and although we all experience them we do not give up. Thus, our Orchestra also wants to bring you some sunshine and smile on a November evening before St. Andrew’s Day with a unique concert, different from most of the concerts this season! This time there will be lots of beautiful singing and a dazzling cross-section of vocal music (with orchestral interludes) from different periods and genres. Excellent soloists admired on different concert scenes in Poland and abroad will present several opera’s “greatest hits” – famous arias by Italian grandmasters of this genre: Donizetti and Verdi. The French Romantic art will resound in Bizet’s aria from the immortal Carmen. The artists will also recall the humorous and charming world of operetta in fragments from compositions by Kálmán, Lehár and Zeller. The impressive programme will be complemented by popular, film and musical music, composed by both still famous artists and those somewhat forgotten, who deserve to be recalled. The concert will be conducted by Sławomir Chrzanowski, the long-standing artistic director of the Zabrze Philharmonic, the orchestra with which he performed at over 2000 concerts in several countries! The artist has also given concerts with the majority of Polish orchestras and numerous prestigious ensembles abroad, including the MWC Symphony Orchestra in Fredericksburg (USA), of which he is the honorary conductor, Chicago Philharmonic or Wuhan Symphony Orchestra (China).
