A concert entitled "Varsovians sing (un)forbidden songs" will take place on 1 August 2019 at 8:30 p.m. on Marshal Józef Piłsudski Square. The yearly event organized by the Warsaw Rising Museum is a part of the celebrations of the 1944 rising.
The museum invites all interested in the history of Warsaw to commemorate that time and honor people who fought for Poland by singing together the insurgent songs. Special songbooks are prepared for this occasion, including songs by famous Polish composers and cultural activists: Karol Kurpiński, Andrzej Panufnik, Jan Ekier, Jan Markowski, Jerzy Dargiel and Kazimierz Oberfeld. This year, the repertoire will be presented by the Stokłosa Collective Orchestra, the Warsaw Violin Choir and soloists: Natalia Piotrowska, Sebastian Machalski and Kuba Jurzyk under the baton of Jan Stokłosa, who is also the author of the arrangements of the works. The concert will be hosted by Tomasz Wolny.
For those who will not be able to reach Marshal Józef Piłsudski Square, the concert will be broadcast live on TVP1 (from 8:35 p.m.).
