On August 12-14 and September 23, 2017 the Aukso Chamber Orchestra from Tychy, directed by Marek Moś, have organized and will perform concerts in the Pieniny mountains. Among some of the highlights of this year’s 18th Summer Philharmonic Festival are film and theater composer Zygmunt Konieczny—who celebrates his jubilee this year—tenor Karol Kozłowski, cellist Dominik Połoński and the Zakopower band. The Festival program will also include other Polish contemporary composers, Sławomir Kaczorowski and Zbigniew Bargielski, as well works by Benjamin Britten, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Georg Philipp Telemann.
The Aukso Summer Philharmonic Festival is a cultural and educational project that brings the highest quality art to the residents of small towns who do not have everyday access to such opportunities. The program of events taking place in Szczawnica, Niedzica and Jaworki features orchestral concerts, chamber music, masterclasses, meetings and presentations of artists connected with the culture of southern Poland. As a part of the program, people will have a chance to learn the secrets of a luthier’s work from Wojciech Topa, who is a member of the highland quartet accompanying the Zakopower group. There will be also a meeting with Burkhard Damman—a German specialist in relaxation and physiotherapeutic techniques dedicated to musicians.
