On the 18th of March, 2023, the name Franciszek Mirecki will be given to the 1st degree Music School in Dobczyce. It will be the first school in Poland named after this famous composer, pianist and teacher.

Thanks to the success of Franciszek Mirecki's operas in Italy and the publication of his works abroad, he is now considered the first Polish composer to gain recognition abroad.

As part of the ceremony, a Holy Mass will be held at the Church of St. Our Lady Help of Christians in Dobczyce, unveiling of a commemorative plaque, opening of the exhibition ‘Franciszek Mirecki - fame and oblivion’, organized in cooperation with the Library of the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, a lecture by Barbara Ostafin devoted to the work of F. Mirecki and a concert. Mirecki's music will be presented by artists from the Lesser Poland Voivodeship: Cracov Singers, harpsichordist Elżbieta Stefańska, organist Jakub Kapała, conductors Marek Hampel and Magdalena Irzyk, cellist Julia Rzazonka and pianist Sabina Kołodziej; we will also hear the Choir of the Primary Music School in Dobczyce ‘Vox Coelestis’.
