Andrzej Mozgała,

composer, conductor, and teacher. He was born on 16 April 1975 in Bielsko-Biała. He attended the Stanisław Moniuszko School of Music in Bielsko-Biała studying the saxophone. In 1995 he started studying music education at the Cieszyn-based campus of Silesian University in Katowice and in 2000 went on to study composition with Józef Świder and theory of music at the Academy of Music in Katowice.

After graduation, he taught theoretical subjects at schools of music in the region of Podkarpacie. At that time he composed many pieces for children.

Andrzej Mozgała won the first prize of the Muzyka Ogrodowa (Garden Music) International Composition Competition in Kraków (2006) for Babie lato (Indian Summer) and the third prize of the Polish National Passion Song Competition in Bydgoszcz (2008) for Psalm 22.

In May 2013 his children's opera Alicja w Krainie Czarów (Alice in Wonderland) was put on by the Pro Musica School of Music in Krosno.
