The Youth’s Wednesday cycle aims at promoting the most talented and recognised young music apprentices, from school learners, through students, to young graduates of music academies. The programme of the cycle includes both solo recitals and chamber and choir concerts. This season’s schedule comprises also two symphony concerts.
On 14 October 2015 the concert hall will host the Polish Sinphonia Iuventus Orchestra directed by Tadeusz Wojciechowski. The soloist of the evening will be Karina Kamizela, flutist, the winner of the Grand Prix award at the All-Poland Auditions run by the Artistic Education Centre in Warsaw and a finalist of the Young Musician of the Year 2014 TV competition.
On 2 December 2015 the concert hall will welcome the Santander Orchestra, an orchestra composed of the most promising students of Polish music academies, launched by the Krzysztof Penderecki European Centre for Music.
The chamber hall will host students of music academies in Bydgoszcz, Gdańsk, Katowice, Kraków, Łódź, Poznań, Warsaw and Wrocław and students of Silesian secondary music schools.
Scheduled in this series are also nine concerts organised in cooperation with the Silesia Institute for the Promotion and Propagation of Music, which will present laureates of the most prestigious international and Polish music competitions. A major asset of the Youth’s Wednesday cycle is its aesthetic diversity. Apart from the standard classic-romantic repertoire, the concert programmes will feature early and new music as well as vocal and operatic repertoire.
Tickets for the chamber hall concerts in the Youth’s Wednesday cycle cost symbolic 1 PLN.
