The National Museum in Krakow invites you to the concert ‘A cappella music of the Polish and European Renaissance’, which will take place on 14 August, 2022 at the Princes Czartoryski Museum. The Cracow Singers choir will perform during the event. Tickets can be purchased via the website www.bilety.mnk.pl
The Cracow Singers ensemble is made up of singers whose common aspiration, as well as a hallmark, is the consistently developed sound aesthetics and the quality of interpretation.
The ensemble performs a repertoire of various genres and styles – from the times of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, to works by contemporary composers, including premieres of new works by Polish and foreign composers. In addition to performing a cappella music, the Cracow Singers collaborate with chamber and symphonic orchestras, performing in an enlarged line up.
During the concert you will be able to hear songs from the Polish and European Renaissance period, including compositions by Wacław of Szamotuły and Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrin.
The word of introduction before the concert will be given by Katarzyna Płonka-Bałus, PhD, curator of the Princes Czartoryski Museum.
