Warsaw | Varsovians Sing (Un)forbidden Songs

MPW77 years ago the Warsaw Uprising broke out. The concert in tribute to its participants will be held on 1 August 2021 at 8.30 in the Freedom Park of the Warsaw Uprising Museum.

As every year, on the evening of 1 August, we will unite by the strength of our voice during the concert "Varsovians sing (un)forbidden songs". We will sing together with the Stokłosa Collective Orchestra and the Choir of Varsovians under the direction of Jan Stokłosa. Maestro arranged selected songs especially for the August concert. Natalia Kujawa, Jerzy Grzechnik and Michał Juraszek will perform as soloists. The event will be hosted by Tomasz Wolny.

The museum invites everyone interested in the history of Warsaw to commemorate that time and the great people, fighting Poles. This year's theme of the concert will be Love. Songbooks are prepared especially for this occasion, which will make it easier for the gathered people to sing together. They contain insurgent repertoire, including songs by famous Polish composers and cultural activists: Karol Kurpiński, Andrzej Panufnik, Jan Ekier, Jerzy Dargiel, Krzysztof Kamil Baczyński, Michał Zieliński and Jan Markowski.

For those who will not be able to reach the Freedom Park, the concert will be broadcast live on TVP1 (from 8.35 p.m.) and on the YouTube channel of the Warsaw Uprising Museum.
