Nowak in Poland

Taking a break from his position as the Permanent Associate Conductor of London’s Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Polish-born conductor Grzegorz Nowak will spend most of August in Poland, giving concerts with several of the country’s top ensembles as part of the Chopin and His Europe Festival. He will be joined by incredible soloists, including cellist Andrzej Bauer and pianists Seong-Jin Cho, Charles Richard-Hamelin and Kate Liu—the first, second and third prize winners at the 2015 Chopin Competition.
