Katowice | "Iskierka" symphonically


The Children's Oncology Orchestra – the only such orchestra in the world – is back in a new setting and place. On 27 February 2020 at 6:00 p.m. at the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra Concert Hall, listeners will enjoy a large dose of fairytale and film music in an absolutely new performance under the direction of Krzesimir Dębski.

Operating since 2006, the Iskierka Foundation has proven that during the oncological treatment children can do incredible and completely crazy things. The organisation founded the Children's Oncology Orchestra, headed by Piotr Sutt. Small patients of hospital wards and their carers received a chance to become artists for one day.

This time the Children's Oncology Orchestra will perform with the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Krzesimir Dębski. We will listen to the music of this amazing artist from the movies Gwiezdny Pirat and W pustyni i w puszczy as well as composition from the film Akademia Pana Kleksa written by Andrzej Waldemar Korzyński and Krzysztof Bohdan Grabowski. The instrumentalists will be accompanied by the Choir of Space Creators (Anbud and friends), i.e. the donors of the foundation in a completely unusual role. The most famous songs from animated movies will be performed by Studio Accantus, Anna Jurksztowicz, Czesław Mozil, Paulina Przybysz, Daria Zawiałow and Ania Brachaczek.

The concert, which shows that you can create a musical event with high artistic value and with incredibly positive energy with oncologically ill children, will be hosted by Mirosław Neinert, Szymon Majewski and Jarosław Boberek. The total income from the event will be allocated to support the activities of the Iskierka Foundation.
