Sinfonietta Cracovia marks its 30th anniversary in myriad ways: with guests from London, over a cup of espresso, among old friends, at the opera, at a picnic, and of course with a year-long music programme which picks up speed in spring. Anniversary events culminate in June. The programme, ranging from Handel’s Water Music to a world premiere of a composition by Mikołaj Majkusiak, will be performed by Sinfonietta Cracovia joined by some of its former members, including Piotr Tarcholik (now concertmaster with the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra and Janusz Widzyk, double-bassist with the Berlin Philharmonic) on 9 June.

Kraków Philharmonic Hall

ul. Zwierzyniecka 1

Besides their weekly symphony concerts, the Kraków Philharmonic also organises master recitals and educational concerts for children and young people.

The Karol Szymanowski Philharmonic Hall in Kraków was the first philharmonic to open in Poland after the Second World War. Besides the weekly symphony concerts, it organises master recitals and educational concerts for children and young people, while the summer meetings with music assume the form of chamber concerts of slightly lighter character. A hallmark of the Kraków Philharmonic repertoire is its programme of oratorios, which the Philharmonic can present thanks to its extensive and varied lineup: the orchestra, mixed choir, and boys choir. The Kraków Philharmonic has become recognised for its promotion of the works of Karol Szymanowski in Poland and abroad.

The Philharmonic Hall frequently hosts concerts by special guests, for example, at major festivals.
