The series of concerts 'Musical Meetings with the poetry of John Paul II' will begin on 13 September 2020 in Mińsk Mazowiecki on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Pope's birth. The first concert will take place at 11.30 a.m. in the Church of St. John the Baptist.
The concert series is organised by the 'Czas Sztuki' Foundation, which focuses its activities on organising free concerts in picturesque rural towns, in historical churches and cultural institutions in the Mińsk district in the Mrozy commune, where the Foundation is based. The members of the Foundation are musicians of The Time Quartet. The quartet is made up of graduates of the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw. During several years of artistic work, the ensemble has performed over 350 concerts in Poland and abroad, and has collaborated with many outstanding ensembles and artists, including Andrzej Jagodziński Trio, Sinfonia Iuventus Orchestra, Grzech Piotrowski World Orchestra, 'Mazowsze' Folk Song and Dance Ensemble and Trifonidis Downtown Sextet. The quartet's musicians are the founders of the Melanidis Orchestra studio orchestra, with which they recorded music for six Polish and foreign films.
The guest of the Sunday concert of The Time Quartet will be Krzysztof Szczepaniak, an excellent actor of the young generation. During this musical meeting, we will hear works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Jules Massenet, César Franck, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and selected poems by Pope John Paul II.
Co-financed from the budget of the City of Mińsk Mazowiecki. Admission to the concert is free.
