Wigry | 2nd "Camaldolese Wigry" Chamber and Organ Music Festival

Kamedulskie Wigry

The JAX Association and the Wigry Pro Foundation invite you to the 2nd "Camaldolese Wigry" Chamber and Organ Music Festival, which will run from 28 June to 23 August 2020 in the Post-Camaldolese Church of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

The "Camaldolese Wigry" Chamber and Organ Music Festival refers to the history and tradition of the post-Camaldolese Wigry church, which over the centuries has witnessed many cultural and artistic events. The concerts are characterized by an unusual variety of styles and musical genres, presenting a rich repertoire: from early music to the 21st century.

The second edition of the Festival features five concerts which will be held in Wigry on selected Sundays in June, July and August at 1.00 p.m. (after mass at 12.00 p.m.). The audience will have a chance to hear, among others, a combination of organ with harmonica, saxophone, trumpet, flute and violin. The programme will include works by Jan Podbielski, Fryderyk Chopin, Karol Kurpiński, Władysław Żeleński, Emil Młynarski, as well as improvisations by Jan Kieszkowski, Paweł Głowiński, Maciej Sikała and Bogusław Grabowski.

The project was co-financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage from the Culture Promotion Fund under the "Music" programme run by the Institute of Music and Dance.
