Traditionally, at the end of summer, between the 21st and  the 31st of August, 2022, we invite music lovers to the events of the 16th National Promotion Festival ‘August of Talents’. In line with tradition established last year, we will first meet in Kościuszko Park, to conclude the ‘Promenade after Music’ series with a vocal concert and at the same time to inaugurate the Festival. The next concerts will take place in the Radio Katowice Concert Studio and in the concert hall of the City of Gardens. 

The „Vocal Promenade” will feature participants of the Opera Academy at the Grand Theater – National Opera in Warsaw: Katarzyna Szymkowiak – mezzo-soprano, Sebastian Mach – tenor and Paweł Horodyski – bass, with piano accompaniment by Michał Skowronek and Natalia Pawlaszek. This time we will be given a slightly deeper dive into the emotions of characters from opera literature, as the program will cover works by just three composers: Mozart, Rossini and Moniuszko.
