The new and modern building in Katowice

28th October 2014



The long-awaited opening of the The Polish National Radio Orchestra’s new concert hall took place on 2nd October with the opening gala including a concert by Krystian Zimerman, Poland’s finest classical pianist.

Krystian Zimerman photo was taken by my c ose friend on opening ceremony




In my opinion is very impressive and modern building . I like it.

Photos were taken 27th October.It was sunny day.

The NOSPR’s new hall was designed by Tomasz Konior from Tomasz Konior Studio and is centrally located at Wojciech Kilar Square where the former “Katowice” coal-mine was located. The great Polish classical musicians Krzysztof Penderecki, Krystian Zimerman and Kilar himself, were engaged in the hall’s design and provided suggestions throughout the building process. The result, a remarkable architectural achievement, with excellent acoustics.
The Opening Festival will last until October 31st.

  8. The orchestra looks like it would be awesome to attend! I've enjoyed orchestras since I listened to them on the radio as a small child.
