Founded in 1942 in the throes of WWII, The Polish Wieniawski Philharmonic gave the first symphony concert in postwar Poland and has since become the largest music institution in eastern Poland. Embarking on its first North American tour in 2022, the orchestra is joined by violinist Agata Szymczewska, the First prize winner of the 13th Henryk Wieniawski International Violin Competition. Under the baton of principal conductor Wojciech Rodek, they are poised to dazzle audiences with the debut performance of the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto at Armstrong Auditorium.
