The sixth festival concert will take place this Friday. September 9, at 19.00 as part of Fide et Amore in the Basilica of The Bielski Chamber Choir will perform in Pszów, Poland.
The Bielski Chamber Choir started its activity in May 1993 as part of the Bielsko Cultural Center. It brings together a group of 25 amateurs, enthusiasts of choral music, young people of various professions. Since its inception, the ensemble has been led by Beata Borowska, and the individual voice emission of the choir members is shaped by Barbara Bałda. The choir has a rich repertoire of religious and secular works of various epochs, ranging from the Renaissance to the present day. In addition to a cappella pieces, the band also performs vocal and instrumental pieces, pieces inspired by folklore of various nations and arrangements of popular music. Bielski Chamber Choir has given concerts in Europe, incl. in Italy, Germany, Greece, Malta, but also in more distant countries such as China, Canada, and Thailand.
The Bielski Chamber Choir will mainly present works on Marian themes, but there will also be pieces of Jewish origin. The proposed repertoire combines music typical of two different cultures: Christian and Jewish, and the buckle that unites these two musical worlds into a thematic whole is the person of Mary.
