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 a North American tour in 2022, the orchestra is joined by violinist Sara Dragan, the first prize winner of the Henryk Wieniawski International Violin Competition and Tomasz Ritter, piano soloist, who in 2018 became the first prize winner of the First International Chopin Competition on Period Instruments in Warsaw.
Members of the Philharmonic will perform under the baton of principal conductor Wojciech Rodek, as they are poised to dazzle Amelia Island audiences in their first performance at the Festival.
