Sieradzka JesieńThe 3rd "Sieradz Organ Autumn" Music Festival includes five Sunday concerts on 3–31 October 2021, featuring no less than 60 excellent musicians who will present organ, chamber and sacred music.

The festival, initiated in 2017 by Błażej Musiałczyk, organist and president of the Art Development Centre Foundation, will take place in two churches in Sieradz: the All Saints Church (Basilica), with the historic 25-voice Adolf Homan organ from 1914, and in the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church, with the 50-voice organ designed by Józef Cynar.

The Festival will present early Polish music (eg. Mikołaj Gomółka's Psalms), works by young Polish composers from the Midnight Stories album awarded with "Fryderyk", as well as works by Western European artists. The final concert, dedicated to the memory of all those who lost the unequal fight against the pandemic, will feature Maurice Duruflé's Requiem for choir and organ.
