„In Memoriam: John Paul II”
A concert to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Karola Wojtyła’s election as pope
Admission free

Anna Lasota – soprano
Jakub Oczkowski  – tenor
Piotr Żukowski  – piano

On 16 October this year, forty years will have passed since the election of Cardinal Karol Wojtyła as successor to St Peter in the Vatican. We are proud to become involved in celebrating that historic event by organising this special concert, which will present a programme of beautiful songs to the Blessed Virgin Mary and a selection of masterpieces of classical and religious music. All of these were among the Pope’s favourite musical pieces, which he enjoyed being performed for him by world-class artists on numerous occasions.

The exquisite artistic value of the concert is guaranteed by the invited artists, graduates of the most prestigious academy of music in Poland, prize-winners of numerous competitions, and attendees of master classes with eminent musicians, all of whom have performed for large audiences across Europe. The concert will take place on 19 August in St Mary’s Church, where we will have an opportunity to listen to Anna Lasota (soprano), Jakub Oczkowski (tenor), and the pianist Piotr Żukowski.

Do come and join us for this magnificent celebration!
