In this passing school year 2018/2019  our teachers gave two teacher-concerts while our students gave six student-concerts

Shortly before the Annual Concert our students which was held in the beautiful Concert Hall of the Fangor Mansion in the Botanic Garden of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Powsin a group of our students who were preparing themselves for the international ABRSM exams gave on  June 23rd  a concert at the Sadyba Center for Cultural Education in Warsaw. These students were: Jan Piwoński, Karolina Kowalska, Barbara Sobka, Madeleine Hojer and Michał Kotas. This was for them an excellent opportunity to test their form ahead of the coming international exams.

The Annual Concert 2018/2019 was held on June 8th  2019. From the very beginning of the Concert we could feel among our students a joyful and inspiring atmosphere in the concert hall. The students enjoyed the possibility to present the effects of their musical education and the audience applauded warmly all performers.
