28 December 2020 IN THE NEW YEAR’S EVE MOOD

We have been looking forward particularly for that evening for many years. We were always pleased that you had chosen to spend the last evening of the year with the Poznan Philharmonic Orchestra and the invited artists and that at midnight we had all welcomed the New Year by exchanging good wishes.

This year’s plans had to be altered due to the pandemic. Though we cannot meet personally in the AMU Concert Hall, we won’t leave you alone that evening. We will be together thanks to the music. Once again we will listen to famous arias, polkas, waltzes, csardas themes and excerpts of popular operas. It will be absorbing not only as far as music is concerned, as the hosts of the New Year’s Eve Concert are the soprano Katarzyna Hołysz and the conductor Łukasz Borowicz, who will both shine artistically and share many interesting tales and musical anecdotes.

We would you to another Internet Concert of the Poznan Philharmonic: the New Year’s Eve Concert on the 31st of December at 8 p.m.
