The National Philharmonic in Warsaw

The National Philharmonic in Warsaw is one of the most important Polish institutions - it is a symbol of our culture and musical tradition. Its prestige extends far beyond the country's borders, attracting not only local audiences but also music enthusiasts from around the world.

Known for its rich history, the National Philharmonic has hosted the greatest talents and witnessed countless musical masterpieces. The building of the Philharmonic, then known as the Warsaw Philharmonic, was built in 1900-1901, and the inaugural concert took place on November 5, 1901. The orchestra was conducted by Emil Młynarski, and the soloists were Wiktor Grąbczewski (bass) and Ignacy Jan Paderewski, a world-renowned pianist, composer, and future statesman. The Warsaw Philharmonic hosted the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Chopin Piano Competitions (1927, 1932, 1937), the 1st Henryk Wieniawski International Violin Competition (1935), the 1st Universal Festival of Polish Art (1937), and (partially) the 17th Festival of the International Society for Contemporary Music (1939).

World War II interrupted the activities of the Philharmonic: its building was destroyed by German air raids, and almost half of the orchestra members lost their lives. The ensemble was reconstituted after the war in the 1947/48 season. The reconstruction of the building, in a completely different style, was completed in 1955. On February 21, on the occasion of the inauguration of the season in the new headquarters, the Warsaw Philharmonic was honored with the title of the National Philharmonic.

The National Philharmonic is a representative institution of musical life in Poland. It is a place for people who want to engage with art at the highest level, as well as a meeting place for personalities of the international cultural, social, and political elite. There is no other place on the map of Poland that is so strongly associated with classical music as the National Philharmonic in Warsaw.

Chorus

The Pro Musica Mundi Choir is a project ensemble. It mainly focuses on performing cantata, oratorio, and symphonic works – both domestically and abroad. Following the model of European choral academies, Pro Musica Mundi facilitates collaboration among various vocal ensembles, creating a union of selected amateur and professional choirs from the Lesser Poland region.

International projects hold special significance in the activities of Pro Musica Mundi, bringing together musicians from different countries to collectively explore musical works and perform concerts. Pro Musica Mundi collaborates with the European Choral Academy. The choir debuted in 2007 during the celebrations of the 750th anniversary of the founding of Krakow, performing "Zakochani w Krakowie" by Piotr Rubik and "The Planets" by Gustav Holst (in collaboration with the Sinfonietta Cracovia orchestra).

In subsequent years, it participated in all editions of the Krakow Film Music Festival, working with top Polish orchestras and renowned conductors on large-scale simultaneous productions. Commissioned by the producer, the Pro Musica Mundi choir recorded a suite from the music of the "The Witcher" series, produced by the American internet service Netflix. The artistic director of the ensemble is Professor Wiesław Delimat.

Singers

Anime Symphony is a chance to hear iconic songs performed by talented musicians and singers. Solo performances will highlight the individual characteristics of each beautiful melody.

We are extremely pleased with their support and we are delighted to be able to promote Polish vocalists during the concert.
