Sinfonia Varsovia to Its City Festival

The Franciszek Wybrańczyk Sinfonia Varsovia for Its City Festival is the Orchestra’s musical gift to the people of Warsaw. The Festival was initiated in 2001 by Franciszek Wybrańczyk, the long-time director of Sinfonia Varsovia.  His Orchestra was homeless for a long time, with the musicians performing abroad much more than in their hometown. That is how the idea of the Festival came about – Sinfonia Varsovia would go on a special tour across the city, performing for Warsaw audiences. Since Sinfonia Varsovia moved to its new headquarters at 272 Grochowska Street, it has hosted many Festival events, thus enriching the musical life of the South Praga district.

Sinfonia Varsovia for Its City features chamber and symphonic music concerts with performances by renowned guest conductors and soloists. Beyond the largest concert halls in Warsaw, the Festival brings concerts to non-mainstream venues such as community centers, churches, and museums, as well as to open-air locations such as amphitheaters and a purpose-built stage at Parade Square. All this aims to provide greater access to and foster engagement with music.

In 2020, the Sinfonia Varsovia for Its City Festival celebrates its 20th anniversary with an entire artistic season taking place at Sinfonia Varsovia’s headquarters.  A series of symphonic and chamber concerts, including a new series of contemporary music concerts, will be held from July through September at 272 Grochowska Street. A varied program offers something for every taste and provides a great opportunity to spend a pleasant holiday afternoon listening to music.

Sinfonia Varsovia to Its City Festival

After a several-month interruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic, Sinfonia Varsovia is getting back into the game! With the local community and all Warsaw locals in mind, the Franciszek Wybrańczyk Sinfonia Varsovia To Its City Festival will be held between 2 August and 3 September, this time taking the shape of a summer art season in the Concert Pavilion. Four days a week, four kinds of events, and a lot of diverse music for every taste – this is Sinfonia Varsovia’s offering in a nutshell.

The events will follow a strict sanitary regime, meaning that the powerful sounds of a symphonic orchestra will be replaced by smaller ensembles and that audience members will be seated apart in line with current regulations. However, this should not be an obstacle when it comes to experiencing live music. Sinfonia Varsovia’s musicians and guest ensembles, all led by renowned conductors, will perform pieces from multiple genres, eras, and formats. The ensembles will perform both traditional chamber music and less-known works. Multimedia performances of contemporary music will be presented on Grochowska street for the first time. The program also has plenty to offer to young audiences and families.
