NATIONAL FORUM OF MUSIC - Poland
The National Forum of Music in Wrocław is a state-of-the-art concert venue, which is the seat of the performing arts organisation established in 2014 after the merger of the International Festival Wratislavia Cantans and the Witold Lutosławski Philharmonic in Wrocław. One of the initiators of the creation of the National Forum of Music is Andrzej Kosendiak, currently serving as its director. The National Forum of Music aims to promote active participation in cultural life among the inhabitants of Lower Silesia and people visiting Wrocław. The results of these intense activities are nine festivals, which each year invite the most outstanding Polish and international artists, the venue itself becoming a space for meetings of representatives of various artistic disciplines, not only music. The NFM is home to twelve resident ensembles: NFM Wrocław Philharmonic, NFM Leopoldinum Orchestra, Wrocław Baroque Orchestra, NFM Choir, NFM Boys’ Choir, Lutosławski Quartet, LutosAir Quintet, NFM Ensemble, NFM Leopoldinum String Trio, Polish Cello Quartet, Wrocław Baroque Ensemble, and West Side Sinfonietta. The National Forum of Music also conducts a wide recording activity (each year it releases numerous albums with varied programmes) as well as offering educational programmes meant for people from all age groups.
