Chopin University Symphony Orchestra

Tomasz Bińkowski Director

Aleksander Zwierz Vice-Director

The Chopin University of Music Symphony Orchestra is a group of excellent young musicians, students of the Department of Instrumental Studies. For many years now the orchestra has co-operated with the most outstanding masters of the baton from Poland and abroad, including professors of our university and the artistic directors of most of the Polish philharmonics. Under their direction and with outstanding soloists (teachers and guest artists) the orchestra has enjoyed many successes, both at the university, and on tours to many concert halls all over the world. It has also recorded for the radio and record companies. The orchestra plans its artistic programme in such a way that students can learn the secrets of performance of music representing different periods, including individual composers’ styles in the area of contemporary music. Additionally, the Chopin University of Music Symphony Orchestra is the only university-based orchestra with such a significant load of activities, thanks to which our students receive a great preparation for working in professional ensembles.
