The Competition originated from the need to experience art, felt both by creators and the public. The most important fact is that Professor Krzysztof Penderecki, one of the most distinguished composers of our times, is the person who is responsible to decide which of the composers has created a work deserving special recognition.

Six compositions will be presented during the competition’s second round, concert for final selection performed by the Radom Chamber Orchestra. It will take place in the Krzysztof Penderecki Concert Hall in Radom on the 29th of November 2019. ARBORETUM accepts works scored for a string orchestra.

Deadline for entries: September 1st, 2019. The postmark is decisive.
