The concert's repertoire will include songs by leading composers of this genre – Fryderyk Chopin, Stanisław Moniuszko, Mieczysław Karłowicz and Władysław Żeleński performed by the soprano Annika Mikołajko-Osman. A graduate of the Academy of Music in Kraków and the Academy of Music in Katowice, she made her solo debut on the stage of the Krakow Philharmonic in the opera Peleas and Melisande under the baton of Gabriel Chmura. She performs opera, operetta, oratorio and choral music, specialising mostly in contemporary music.
The concert also includes the performance of one of the forgotten pieces by Eugeniusz Pankiewicz and the premiere of a composition by Karol Osman, created especially for this occasion.
