This time, the festival will assume a slightly different form. The laureates of previous editions and this year’s participants will take part in it.
According to tradition, on the first day of the festival, i.e. July 8, 2019, qualified participants of this year’s edition will attend the audition. A Jury will select laureates who will perform in the Gala Concert ending the Festival.
July 9 will be marked by the meetings of masters and young artists – laureates of previous editions and this year’s participants. The meetings will take the form of individual workshops for different groups of instruments. as well as joint musical workshops. All participants will have the opportunity to play music and sing together. There will be workshops on voice and breathing, instrumental workshops, stage image and musical memory workshops. The day will end with a great musical meeting with the masters. It will be an occasion not only to play music together but also to mingle with other guests.
The crowning of this year’s jubilee edition will be the Concert under the banner of “World Music Meetings of Masters and Artists”. The laureates of this year’s edition will perform selected compositions, and the winners of the previous editions will perform in duets or trios with musicians known from Polish and world stages.
