Gorski 8 6 24The Konstanty Gorski Music Society invites you to the celebrations marking the 100th anniversary of death and the 165th anniversary of birth of its Patron, to be held on the 8th of June, 2024, in Poznań.

The celebrations will begin at 10:00 AM at the Church of Our Lady of Sorrows in Poznań (97 Głogowska Street). This church, located in the Łazarz district of Poznań, serves the parish community to which the Society's Patron belonged. After moving to Poznań in 1922, Konstanty Gorski lived with his family in a nearby tenement at 24 Niegolewski Street (a plaque dedicated to the composer was unveiled on this building on the 150th anniversary of Gorski's birth). The musical setting for the service will be prepared by students from the Mieczysław Karłowicz Secondary Music School in Poznań (Łucja Tyran - soprano, Amelia Zemska - soprano, Karol Balcer - organ, Bruno Walerych - organ), under the direction of Magdalena Nowacka-Kleban (soloist) and Robert Hauptmann (organist). During the ceremony, Konstanty Gorski's Fantasia in F minor for organ will be performed by Karol Balcer.
