Biography

The Choir began its professional activity under Zbigniew Soja in 1953 and gave its first concert in May of the same year under Witold Rowicki, who was artistic director of Warsaw Philharmonic at that time. The subsequent choirmasters were: Roman Kuklewicz (1955-1971), Józef Bok (1971-1974), Antoni Szaliński (1974-1978), and the present choirmaster Henryk Wojnarowski, who has held this position since 1978.

The central part of the choir’s artistic activity are frequent symphonic and choral-orchestral concerts given each season with Warsaw Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra as well as a cappella performances in Warsaw Philharmonic Hall. The Choir also performs regularly at the “Warsaw Autumn” International Festival of Contemporary Music and in Wrocław at the Wratislavia Cantans Festival.

The Warsaw Philharmonic Choir is also very active internationally, performing for audiences in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Russia, Spain, Switzerland and Turkey. It has frequently been invited to give concerts with eminent orchestras, such as the Munich Philharmonic, the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, the RIAS Orchestra, the Bamberger Symphoniker, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem Symphony Orchestras, the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia Symphony Orchestra in Rome, the Brussels Opera Orchestra, the Palermo Symphony Orchestra and the Orchestra of the Milanese La Scala.
