This year’s 43 rd edition of the Festival, present on the cultural map of Gdańsk for many years, will start with an inauguration concert on the 3 rd of July and will last until 28 August 2020.
Traditionally, the festival concerts will be held each Friday, 8.15 p.m., at St. Mary’s Basilica in Gdańsk. Music lovers visiting the festival will have an opportunity to please their ears mainly with the sound of the organ, but there will also be other instruments to admire. In addition to the broad group of instrumentalists, planned in the festival programme are performances by two outstanding vocal ensembles: Art'n'Voices vocal octet and the Schola Cantorum Gedanensis Polish Chamber Choir.
Just like in the previous years, the music in the repertoire of the 43rd 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 its 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 43rd International Festival of Organ, Choir, and Chamber Music will be held on 28 August 2020; the special concert to mark the Indulgence Feast of Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary on 15 August (Saturday) will be held at 8:30 p.m.
