This summer’s 44th edition of the Festival which has been present on the cultural map of Gdańsk for many years will start with the inauguration concert on the 2nd July and will last until 27th August 2021.
Traditionally, the festival concerts will be held each Friday, 8.15 p.m., at St. Mary’s Basilica in Gdańsk. In addition to the sound of the historic organ which will dominate the concerts, music lovers attending the festival events will have the opportunity to hear natural trumpets, or the atmospheric sound of the saxophone. In addition to the broad group of instrumentalists, planned in the festival programme are performances by two outstanding vocal ensembles: the 441 Hz Choir, and the Schola Cantorum Gedanensis Polish Chamber Choir.
Just like in the previous years, the music in the repertoire of the International Festival of Organ, Choir, and Chamber Music will reverberate in a splendid acoustic setting. In the exceptional interior of St. Mary’s Basilica called the ‘Crown of Gdańsk’ each concert played within the Basilica’s walls will shine with the full spectrum of its aesthetic qualities, giving the audiences an opportunity to experience moments of deep contemplation of music.
The last concert closing the 44 th International Festival of Organ, Choir, and Chamber Music will be held on 27 th August 2021; the special concert to mark the Indulgence Feast of Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary on 15 th August (Sunday) will be held at 8:30 p.m
