Campus 2005
Poland

In 2005 a neighbouring country was invited to the Orchestra Campus, namely  the symphony orchestra of the Music Academy Krakow, which Wojciech Czepiel has been directing since 1996. It presents around ten concerts a year. The ensemble’s repertoire ranges from the grand symphonies of the Classical and Romantic eras to the Modern. It has premiered many works, including compositions by M. Stachowski, Z. Bujarski, A. Walacinski, K. Moszumanska-Nazar, M. Mengjigi, W. Widlak, W. Z. Zych and W. Gholmieh. The Symphony Orchestra of the Krakow Academy of Music has performed under many celebrated conductors, including Krzysztof Missona, Jerzy Katlewicz, Jerzy Maksymiuk, Antoni Wit, Vladimir Ponkin, Helmuth Rilling and Krzysztof Penderecki. Working with the ensemble, Penderecki has interpreted pieces by Mahler, Berlioz and Beethoven, and also worked on his own Second Symphony and his “The Seven Gates of Jerusalem”.

The Orchestra Campus 2005 stood under the patronage of the Polish Ambassador in Berlin, Dr. Andrzej Byrt and the Lord Mayor of the Federal City of Bonn, Bärbel Dieckmann.
