The Polish Wieniawski Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in December 1944 and is the largest music institution in eastern Poland. Its beginnings go back to numerous chamber and solo concerts given by musicians who after World War II established ties within Poland. On May 18, 1945, these smaller events were enlarged into an orchestral classical music gala—the first symphony concert in post-war Poland. Since then, the ensemble has toured internationally and featured acclaimed artists both from Poland and abroad. Led by its principal conductor Wojciech Rodek, the orchestra now makes its first US tour. Featured soloist Agata Szymczewska is winner of the Henryk Wieniawski International Violin Competition and the London Music Masters Award and “plays with a poise, authority, and musical intelligence beyond her years” (The Times, London).
