Katowice Poland Music
The new concert hall is a major technical achievement of the 21st century and has the potential to be an important step towards establishing a worldwide reputation as one of the most prestigious concert halls in the world, not only for its quality but also for the quality of its design.
The Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music in Katowice is very active both at the national and international level and cooperates with a number of other institutions, such as the National Institute of Contemporary Art, the Institute of Art and Cultural Studies and the University of Warsaw. The school is one of many cultural institutions in the city and an important cultural center. In and around KatOWice there are many different places that are closely connected to culture, for example, in many places musical meetings and jazz are organized. The exhibits include non-professional art, including works by miners, there is a museum, art gallery, children's art gallery, art galleries, museums, galleries and art and culture galleries.
The Deputy Mayor of Katowice, who opened the festival, emphasized the role of music in the history and future of Katowice. The next goal of the event is to raise awareness of the role of music. The installation was designed by the antyRAMA collective and created as a homage to the city that bears the title Creative City. This award was awarded by UNESCO in 2010 as part of its Creative Cities programme.
This project will help bring world music to Katowice and the world of music and develop the city as a creative city. Creating a strong link between art, culture, music and the local community will also help to develop and enlarge the world of music on stage. We welcome KatOWice as a UNESCO city of music and discover the 7 most interesting music festivals that will take place in Poland in 2014.
Overall, it is amazing how Katowice has gone from a cultural retreat to a UNESCO city of music in just over 50 years. KatOWice now hosts over 30 music festivals annually, and although these three festivals have played a major role in the development of the city's music scene in recent years, the fact that they have finally attracted the attention of UNESCO and consolidated their position in an exclusive club is also due to the homemade classical music scene. Although Silesia has long been a haven of R & B - derived rock'n "roll - this spirit is embodied in the festival energy of this region.
If you look at the wide range of festivals in Poland, the lack of diversity in live performances seems like a distant past. While large parts of Poland still recognize that Katowice is rapidly becoming Poland's most important music destination, visitors to the music festival are already aware of it locally and internationally. This is particularly true of Katowice, which has evolved in a little over 50 years from a cultural retreat to a UNESCO music city. With the new wave of development in this historic region, inspired by the success of the world's biggest music festivals such as Lollapalooza and the European Music Festival, it has firmly established itself as one of Europe's most important music destinations on the global stage.
Everyone is talking about indoor and outdoor music festivals, the list of artists from around the world is impressive, and the turning point came with the release of the symphonic poem "The Orchestra," inspired by the music of John Cage, John Lennon and other famous composers. The song was written in a suburban garage made of Polish cinder blocks called "Fade to Blue" and produced in Katowice. It sounds like jazz, but it is also very different from the jazz sounds of the biggest European festivals like Lollapalooza.
A special educational concert for small children is the Knurow Colliery Band, which will perform in the Katowice City Gardens. Here are some of the concerts that have taken place in recent years, including the first concert of the Polish Symphony Orchestra, which won the 1975 International Chopin Competition in Warsaw, and the second in 2009.
Not to be surpassed in Katowice and proof that the wider Silesian region is just as exciting, Chorzow is now aptly named Fest Festival, the first of its kind in the country, which takes place only a few kilometres from the city centre on the Rawa River. What started as a small one-day event in 2002 has grown into one of the largest in the country, swapping Warsaw for Gdynia. Today, the initiative, which takes its name from the Rava River, is the largest festival in Poland and the second largest in Europe after the Warsaw Music Festival.
The aim of the initiative, as the organizers emphasize, is to present the creative side of the Polish music scene and encourage listeners to experiment with music. The organizers are trying to attract young and promising artists, who often have not released long-form plays, to Katowice, and their festival is the first of its kind in Poland and the second largest in Europe after Warsaw.
