Next Friday, on the 20th of November at 7 p.m. we invite you for another Internet Concert of Poznan Philharmonic.
This evening we will listen to The Poznan Nightingales at a concert commemorating the choir’s founder, Prof. Stefan Stuligrosz.
Stefan Stuligrosz was a conductor, composer, organist, lecturer at the Academy of Music in Poznan (he held the post of the rector of that institution for five years), chairman of the Henryk Wieniawski Musical Society. However, it was The Poznan Nightingales choir that he considered his magnum opus. He had spent several decades on creating the ensemble of a unique and always discernible artistic image.
Boy’s and Men’s Choir of the Poznan Philharmonic The Poznan Nightingales is a phenomenon in Poland in every way. The ensemble achieved international fame by singing in almost all European countries, as well as in the United States, Canada, South Korea and Japan, has been led by its founder, Prof. Stefan Stuligrosz, for 72 years. Even shortly before his death (let us remind you that Prof. Stefan Stuligrosz died on the 15th of June 2012 in Puszczykowo at the age of 92) the Scoutmaster, as the choirsingers have called him for decades, led rehearsals and conducted during the concerts.
On the 100th anniversary of Maestro’s birthday The Nightingales sang a concert dedicated to his memory. The program include works written by the Scoutmaster.
