The Lublin Branch of the Polish Composers' Union invites you to a concert entitled "Chord XVI – choral music of Lublin composers", which will take place in the Lublin Archcathedral on 20 October 2019 at 8.15 p.m.
Since 1988, the Lublin Branch of the Polish Composers' Union has organized a series of chamber and occasionally symphonic concerts called "Chord". It's main goal is to promote the achievements of composers associated with Lublin and the Lublin region. Fifteen editions of the series took place between 1988-2015.
The honorary patronage over this year's concert was taken by the Metropolitan of Lublin, Archbishop Stanisław Budzik. An introduction will be given by the President of the Lublin Branch of the Polish Composers' Union, Mariusz Dubaj. The renowned Lublin choir 'Camerata Lubelska' conducted by Tomasz Orkiszewski will perform choral compositions of Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, Tadeusz Szeligowski, Andrzej Koszewski, Kazimierz Górski, Andrzej Nikodemowicz, Mieczysław Mazurek, Henryk Czyżewski and Mariusz Dubaj. Two works will receive their world premieres: Triptych by Andrzej Nikodemowicz and Missa Nova in Latin by Mariusz Dubaj.
The concert is co-financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage as part of the "Music" programme through the Polish Composers' Union in Warsaw.
