The Fry­deryk Chopin Uni­ver­si­ty of Music Sym­pho­ny Orches­tra is a group of excel­lent young musi­cians, stu­dents of the Depart­ment of Instru­men­tal Stud­ies. For many years now the orches­tra has co-oper­at­ed with the most out­stand­ing mas­ters of the baton from Poland and abroad, includ­ing pro­fes­sors of our uni­ver­si­ty and the artis­tic direc­tors of most of the Pol­ish phil­har­mon­ics. Under their direc­tion and with out­stand­ing soloists (ped­a­gogues and guest artists) the orches­tra has had many suc­cess­es, both at the uni­ver­si­ty, and on tours to many con­cert halls all over the world. The Sym­pho­ny Orches­tra has also record­ed for the radio and record com­pa­nies. The Sym­pho­ny Orches­tra plans its artis­tic pro­gramme sev­er­al years in advance so that, in the course of their stud­ies, grad­u­ates of the Depart­ment of Instru­men­tal Stud­ies can learn the secrets of per­for­mance of music rep­re­sent­ing dif­fer­ent peri­ods and styles, includ­ing indi­vid­ual com­posers’ styles in the area of con­tem­po­rary music.
