The Master and Young Talents

Concert concluding Opera Academy workshops with Tomasz Konieczny 

Opera Academy strives to support the professional development of young opera prospects by offering them a chance to partake in regular, intense workshops and master classes led by renowned opera figures as well as to perform before live audiences at the opera house, elsewhere in Poland (with the Radom Chamber Orchestra and Sinfonia Varsovia), and abroad (Oper Frankfurt), to facilitate their easy transition to professional career. 

Held at the Witold Lutosławski Concert Stduio of Polish Radio in Warsaw, the concert will conclude a master class led by Tomasz Konieczny, noted Polish bass-baritone who has earned world acclaim for his stage performances and interpretations of art songs. During the two weeks of classes the participants benefited from the singer’s expertise, experience, good nature, and willingness to share the secrets of his trade with the younger generation. On 3 December, the young artists and their master will share the stage alongside the Polish Radio Orchestra under Michał Klauza to perform a programme they worked on during the master class.
