Choirs / Songs Workshop

Director:  Mr. Gregor Laskowski

Who is the International Oratorio Choir?

The International Oratorio Choir (artistic director Peter Laskowski) is a project choir, with which you may again perform the oratorios you know in an international lineup.

Who can take part in the project?
  • groups of at least 10 persons
What are the terms and conditions for singers?
  • own choral scores (published by Bärenreiter);  You can order it from us or here
  • some rough knowledge of the piece (e.g. having worked through it yourself or indeed having performed it on a previous occasion)
  • commitment to attend all the rehearsals throughout the project phase
Which piece will be worked on together?

The Requiem Mass in D minor (KV 626) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s is his final composition. Even though only two-thirds actually originate from Mozart himself, it is one of his best loved and admired works. Mozart died while writing the Mass. The piece was completed by his two students, Eybler and Süßmayr. The genesis and quality of later additi­ons have been hotly debated for a long time. The strange circumstances in which the work was commissioned, and the chronological connection between this requiem mass and Mo­zart’s rather early death has also inspired countless legends.

Where will the rehearsals be held?

In Cracow the International Oratorio Choir will be using the rehearsal rooms.
The former capital of Poland is one of Europe’s last undiscovered destinations by mass tou­rism. Here the Holy Father Pope John Paul II served as a Bishop for more than twelve years. Centre of the old town is Rynek (main market place), one of Europe’s most beautiful and lar­gest market places. This market place is divided by huge cloth halls as well as the gothic St. Mary’s Basilica. At the south edge of the old town rises the Wawelburg with the famous King’s castle. In 2000, Krakow was the European Capital of Culture.

Where and when the concert will take place?

The concert will be held in Cracow (Poland) on 30th September 2017 as part of the Cracovia Music Festival.
